2015) claimed that the inclusion of foods with medium or high lipid content in the feed for laying hens is directly associated with alterations in the results of yolk percentage due to changes in the lipid metabolism that rules the deposition of these in the yolk, as well as in the results of albumen percentage due to the direct influence of these foods on the balance of the energy-protein ratio, and consequently, on the deposition of albumin for its formation.
Briefly, the yolk and albumen were homogenized using a stomacher (BagMixer, InterScience, France) in a 1:10 dilution of 0.

For internal quality parameters, 50 eggs from each egg weight category were broken in glass plate and after five minutes long and short diameters and height of both albumen and yolk were measured with vernier caliper while albumin index and yolk index were calculated using following formulae following (Abu Tabeekh, 2011);
