Higher housing densities for broilers



Higher housing densities for broilers



Memoria, Asociacion Latinoamericana de Produccion Animal 13: 75



From hatching to 56 days of age, 22 000 Barred Plymouth Rock broilers were housed at densities of 14.3, 13.4, 12.7 or 11.9 birds/m2. In the 4 groups, body weight at 56 days averaged 1339, 1328, 1333 and 1317 g resp., and the food conversion index 2.37, 2.46, 2.47 and 2.50.
