PENKOV, D., 2000. Content of apparent and true metabolisable energy of egg meal without shells experimented with geese. Bulg J. Agric. Sci., 6: 99-102

The chemical composition and the gross energy value of egg meal without shell byproduct from hatchery have been established. Using adapted for balanced experiments with geese methods the contents of apprent and true metabolizable energy have been established.
The established results are, as follow (in DM): crude protein 54.28 %, ether extract 38.0 %, ash 5.40%, gross energy 28898 J/g, AMEn 15279J/g, TMEn 17228 J/g .

Key words: metabolizable energy, byproducts from hatchery, geese
