Whey protein has been shown several times over to be the top choice for supporting muscle growth with training. However, many people have milk allergies that make consuming whey, well, uncomfortable. Luckily, egg protein has a similar leucine content and excellent digestibility ratings which likely make it a suitable replacement for whey protein. However, due to a variety of reasons, research into egg protein and muscle growth is lacking, especially when compared to whey protein. Therefore, whey is still the best evidence-based choice, but egg protein is more than likely a solid second option.

I have problems with whey myself and only use meat and egg whites.
Whey has always upset my stomach. Years ago, ISS had a egg protein that I loved but sadly they no longer make it.
