Response of laying hens to a low salt diet



Response of laying hens to a low salt diet



Poultry Science 55(6): 2128-2133



In 2 experiments commercial Leghorn hens 16 months of age had a maize and soya diet with 16% protein and no added salt. There was an immediate and significant decline in feed intake and loss of weight. After 14 days there was no ovum in the rapidly maturing stage. The ovary may have been reduced in size but apparently was not regressed. Egg specific gravity was reduced but egg weight was not affected. Egg production stopped in 17 to 21 days.
