Influence of Oviposition Time and Lighting Program on Eggshell Quality

Abstract

The times of oviposition are affected little by the use of a night lighting program. Egg shell weight is not changed by the time of oviposition. Egg weight, shell percentage and it's color vary according to the time of oviposition. The egg characteristics have not been affected by the use of night lighting. Night lighting reduces the percentage of eggs downgraded, in particular reducing by 37 % the percentage of eggs with pimpled ends.
