Metabolizable energy values of feedstuffs and energy requirements for laying hens

Metabolizable energy values of feedstuffs and energy requirements for laying hens

Feedstuffs, USA 47(8): 37-38

In trials during 7 years, energy intake of White Leghorn hens was reduced, by the addition of high-fibre, low-energy ingredients such as barley, wheat bran and barley hulls, from 300 to 340 kcal ME/bird daily to 230 to 240 kcal. Laying house temperatures differed, including a 40 deg to 60 deg F variable temperature and 80 deg F. There was little difference in egg production or egg size.
