Effect of three lifetime ambient temperatures on growth, feed and water consumption and various blood components in male and female Leghorn chickens



Effect of three lifetime ambient temperatures on growth, feed and water consumption and various blood components in male and female Leghorn chickens



Poultry Science 57(3): 798-803



In 2 trials Single-Comb White Leghorn chickens were kept at 21.1 deg , 29.4 deg or 35 deg C from 2 to 31 or 32 weeks old. Bodyweight, feed efficiency, water intake, red cell count, Hb value, haematocrit, plasma total protein, pO2, pCO2, pH and mortality were estimated weekly. Blood picture changed with age, sex and ambient temperature.
