Response of egg production and shell quality to increases in environmental temperature in two age groups of hens



Response of egg production and shell quality to increases in environmental temperature in two age groups of hens



Poultry Science 55(2): 818-820



Eight-mth- and 14-mth-old laying hens were exposed to 6 abrupt increases in environmental temp. from 21.5 deg to 35 deg C. The egg production and shell quality of older birds were more severely affected than those of younger birds.
