The effects of drinking carbonated water on the egg shell quality of Single Comb White Leghorn hens exposed to high environmental temperature



The effects of drinking carbonated water on the egg shell quality of Single Comb White Leghorn hens exposed to high environmental temperature



Poultry Science 64(3): 594-596



Single-Comb White Leghorn hens 30 weeks old were given tap water or carbonated water, produced by bubbling 100% CO2. The hens were kept in a chamber at temperature 23 degrees C for 7 days and then at 35 degrees for another 7 days. The hens ate a standard layer diet with 3.75% calcium and had a 14 h light:10 h dark photoperiod. Carbonated water gave a higher average egg yield, significant at 23 degrees.
