Abstract

The avian egg consists of a minute reproductive cell quite comparable to that found in mammals. But in the case of the chicken, this cell is located on the surface of the yolk and surrounded by albumen, shell membranes, shell, and cuticle. The ovary is responsible for the formation of the yolk; the remaining portions of the egg originate in the oviduct.
