Given confidence belt equations, it was possible to calculate the confidence limits around predicted egg energy content for any egg volume between the minimum and maximum observed values for linear and allometric regression models.
Confidence belts were used to evaluate the predictive power of the regression of egg energy content on egg volume (see explanation below).
The predictive power of a regression depends on the width of the confidence belts around the regression and the slope of the regression.
