The egg yolk color of the commercial layer hen breeds with high egg performance is lighter than the local breed chickens with lower egg production performance.
(2) Day age
The color of egg yolk has a strong correlation with the age of laying hens. With the increase of age, the function of intestinal absorption of carotenoids gradually weakens, and the ability to deposit egg yolks declines. Getting shallower.
(3) Diet ingredients

Disease is also one of the main factors affecting the color of egg yolk, because various factors affecting the enzymatic digestion of feed in the digestive tract or the absorption function of certain parts of the digestive tract will affect the deposition of carotenoids in the poultry body, thereby affecting the color of the egg yolk .
(5) Feeding management

2. Measures to improve the color of egg yolk:
Taking China as an example, the diet of layer hens in China is generally soybean meal type. The soybean meal type diet can maintain the color of the egg yolk at the Roche color fan's chromaticity of level 6, and the production performance of caged commercial layer hens is much higher than Flocks of free-range local breeds are obviously unrealistic for the yolk color of eggs produced by commercial laying hens to reach or exceed the yolk color of local breeds.
Synthetic chemical colorants also have the function of increasing the color of egg yolk, but they are somewhat toxic and are prohibited.
Egg yolk The eggs with a chromaticity of about 11 on the Roche color fan are favored by consumers. Many farms cannot achieve this color, so additional colorants are needed to solve this problem.

It adopts a special extraction method for Chinese herbal medicine from abroad. The egg yolk colorant developed by the Chinese herbal medicine will obviously deepen the yolk color after use. Reach level 10 or above.
(2)Process or purchase premix directly, add egg yolk coloring agent on the basis of common laying hen premix, only need to directly produce and feed according to the formula, saving cost and easy to use. It can significantly improve the color of egg yolk to about Roche's colorimetric level 13 and 5-6 higher than ordinary egg yolk. The color of the egg shell is deepened; the pigment has good heat resistance and is not easy to fade after cooking.
