Plundering birds nests was undoubtedly common practice in pre-agricultural ages. The egg only occupied an important place in human food after fowl had been domesticated.

Industrial production nowadays has made the egg a widely distributed, cheap product.

Egg is a food of high nutritional value which is cheaper than meat.

A symbol of fertility, the egg is celebrated in some societies, yet considered with suspicion in others.
