Abstract: Eggshell translucency is the appearance of lighter coloured regions of the shell visible when an egg is viewed over a light source. Some research has been conducted into the causes of translucency in the past but there has been little work recently and the cause of translucency remains uncertain. This study aimed to identify the structural cause of eggshell translucency and determine if translucency correlates with bacterial penetration of eggs.
