Moroccan Arabic: بيض (singular بيضة)
Bayd – sometimes spelled baid or beid – is the Moroccan Arabic word for eggs. The singular is bayda. These are the same words used in Stanadard Arabic.
Some variations of bayd are:
- bayd bildi - organic eggs or eggs from free-range chickens

Eggs sold in Morocco are usually tan to brown in color, and not washed prior to delivery to local shops in open cartons of 30 eggs. At most shops, Moroccans can buy only as many eggs as needed, even if only a single egg.
