Egg Shell Defect: Star cracks

  • 32_starcracksDescription

    Star cracks are fine cracks radiating outwards from a central point of impact, which is often slightly indented.

    The egg in the photograph has been placed over a bright light. This is the way it would look to a candling operator.


    The incidence varies with flock age but is usually 1 to 2% of total production.
