Abstract

This study implies the Effect of Chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) eggshells in the mass of Chicken layers and Nutritional Content of Chicken Eggs. The study’s objectives were to investigate whether Chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) eggshells can affect the mass of the chicken layers and if Chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) eggshells can affect the quality of eggs in terms of nutritional analysis. Laying hens have a high demand for calcium, especially during egg production when calcium output is at its greatest (Scott et al, 2002). Complete Randomized Design was used to find out the effect of Chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) eggshells in the mass of the chicken layers. There were five (5) treatments used in this study: 50% Ca, 50% H20; 25% Ca, 75% H20; 4% Ca, 96% H20; 10% Ca, 90% H20; 100% H20, respectively. Each treatment comprised five (5) replications. Moreover, a sample egg underwent nutritional analysis in the Department of Science and Technology-Region II. On October 30, 2011, the average mass of the experimental units was 1.544 kg. On November 15, 2011, the average mass was 1.592 kg. Last November 30, 2011, the average mass increased to 1.62 kg. Statistical calculations produced an Fc less than Ftab at 0.05 level of significance, therefore, Ho is rejected. 0.19 is obtained as the LSD value. Based on the egg nutritional analysis, out of 100 grams, there was moisture of 77.54%, 1.12% ash, 11.18% crude protein, 7.8% total fat, and 2.36% carbohydrate, respectively.

The researchers recommend commercializing Chicken Eggshells as calcium Supplement to be used by the poultry industry for economic improvement.
