The identification of weak shelled eggs at the packing station



The identification of weak shelled eggs at the packing station



Record of Agricultural Research (Belfast) 25: 33-38



The value of culling [chicken] eggs at the packing station on the basis of their shell thickness was investigated. Hopefully, this would reduce the likelihood of an egg breaking during the subsequent transit to the retail outlet. Shell thickness was estimated by specific gravity measurements on the egg, the transit was simulated by a drop test. The correlation between the specific gravity measurement and the incidence of cracking in the drop test was practically zero indicating that there is little value, after the normal candling procedure, in attempting to improve the sheel quality of a consignment of eggs by removing those with the thinner shells.
