Control of energy balance during egg production in the laying hen



Control of energy balance during egg production in the laying hen



Journal of Nutrition 117(3): 605-611



The energetic costs of egg production are considered, as is the relation between egg production and feed intake. Hens feed during the photophase with a peak in consumption before the scotophase. This pattern of intake, followed by nocturnal fast, would be expected to lead to an energy deficit at night. However, much of the energy requirement of the night is met by utilization of feed stored in the upper gastrointestinal tract.
