Effects of high environmental temperature and diet on egg shell quality and performance of laying hens



Effects of high environmental temperature and diet on egg shell quality and performance of laying hens



Dissertation Abstracts International, B 36(7): 3138



Two experiments were conducted on White Leghorn hens. The temps. studied in the 1st experiment were constant 21 deg C and constant 32 deg , whereas in the 2nd experiment, the environments were constant 21 deg , constant 31 deg , and fluctuating 31 deg , in which the temp. changed uniformly from a maximum of 35.6 deg at noon to a minimum of 26.7 deg at midnight. The birds in each environment were fed either a typical laying diet or a "high nutrient density" (HND) diet.
