Eggs are laid by female animals of many different species, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish, and have been eaten by humans for thousands of years. Bird and reptile eggs consist of a protective eggshell, albumen (egg white), and vitellus (egg yolk), contained within various thin membranes.

The most popular choice for egg consumption are chicken eggs. Other popular choices for egg consumption are duck, quail, roe, and caviar. Egg yolks and whole eggs store significant amounts of protein and choline, and are widely used in cookery.

Due to their protein content, the United States Department of Agriculture categorises eggs as Meats within the Food Guide Pyramid.Despite the nutritional value of eggs, there are some potential health issues arising from egg quality, storage, and individual allergies.

Here are some interesting egg recipes:
* Eggs Benjamin
* Perfect poached eggs
* Oeufs en Cocotte
* Spanish omelette
* Kuku sabzi
