Abstract :Heavy metal pollution is of great concern because of its great non-biodegradable and persistent nature in the environment. Due to its bioaccumulation and biomagnification, it poses threat to human health. Eggs are a major source of protein. With its increasing consumption, it is very important to analyze their residual heavy metal content. The present study has been conducted to determine Zinc (Zn), Lead (Pb), Iron(Fe), and Cadmium(Cd) concentration in egg, feed, water samples collected from different poultry farms in various districts of Bihar. The concentration of Zn ranged from 0.012 mg/I to 0.0451 mg/I in albumin and feed samples respectively.

The concentration of Pb was found to be 0.000 – 0.023 mg/I and 0.000 – 0.034 mg/I in albumin and yolk of the same egg samples respectively.
The concentrations of Zn and Pb were above the permissible limit provided by WHO in the egg, feed and water samples collected from Hajipur and Phulwari.
The concentrations of Cd was 0.000mg/I in the egg feed and water samples. Fe concentration was found to be higher in yolk than the albumin of the same egg samples and also in the feed samples. In this study the Cd and Fe was lower than the permissible limit set by WHO.

Keywords: Heavy metal, bioaccumulation, non-biodegradable, contamination.
