I mean details vidhi about

  3. food value
  4. how to consume etc etc

if yes then please provide the details


Atharvaveda 8.6.23 condemns the consumption of eggs.

It states

Ya aamam maansamadanti paurusheyam cha ye kravih
Garbhaan khaadanti keshavaastaanito naashayaamasi

We ought to destroy those who eat cooked as well as uncooked meat, meat involving destruction of males and females, foetus and eggs.
