Effect of various pullet restriction methods on performance of broiler breeders



Effect of various pullet restriction methods on performance of broiler breeders



Poultry Science 55(2): 502-509



In an attempt to restrict bodyweight of broiler breeder pullets, the treatments were: (1) timed feeding daily, 2800 kcal ME/kg; (2) skip-a-day feeding, 2800 kcal ME/kg; (3) limited feeding daily, 2800 kcal ME/kg; (4) skip-a-day feeding, 1830 kcal ME/kg; (5) limited feeding daily, 1830 kcal ME/kg. All diets were isonitrogenous. Skip-a-day feeding resulted in the lowest bodyweight at 22 weeks of age and the lowest content of body fat of the 3 feeding methods.
