The conjecture in the literature is that the chicken yolk is either nutritionally deficient or is not as digestiable to the tadpole. The reduction in nutrient availability results in the slower growth and longer time frame spent as a tadpole as well as the issues upon metamorphosis (and post metamorphosis). The reason this is conjecture is because there currently isn't a nutritional analysis of the feeder eggs to allow for a comparision with chicken yolk.
