Abstract

This study was conducted in Ghazikot Township (150 acre), Mansehra during 2014 breeding season. Mean nest density of the House Crow was 3.1 nests/acre. The mean clutch size recorded 4.1 egg ranged 3-6. Mean egg length and breadth 37.6±0.71 and 25.3±0.52mm, respectively. Mean egg volume 12.7±0.73cm3 and egg shape index calculated to be 1.48±0.022. Mean weight of the House Crow egg recorded 11.77±0.39g. There is no significant correlation exists between egg length and breadth in relation to different clutch size (P>0.05) and similarly there is no positive correlation exists between weight of House Crow eggs in relation to different clutch size (P>0.05).
