A study on egg parameters of Fayumi breed was conducted using, 1070 eggs obtained from a Fayumi flock. Egg weight, length and width were recorded and then seventy eggs taken at random from these eggs were opened to investigate albumin, yolk and shell weight. The rest 1, 000 eggs were incubated and after incubation, shell weight, and thickness were recorded Average albumin, and yolk weight were 5.22 and 22.56 g, respectively. Albumin (b=-0.5596) and yolk (b=-0.4404) was found negatively and non significantly associated with shell weight. Average egg, and shell weight were 42.62 and 4.60g, respectively. Egg weight was found significantly and positively associated with egg width (b=0.4465), egg length (b=0.2588) and shell weight (b=1.8790) but negatively associated with shell thickness (b=-0.1246). Average egg width and length were 51.12 and 38.95 mm, respectively. Average shell thickness was 0.34 mm and found negatively associated with egg width (b=-0.00019) and length (b=-0.0012).
