Age of beak trimming - its effect on body weight


Poultry Adviser 21(12): 45-48
Age of beak trimming - its effect on body weight
In the 1st of 2 experiments using White Leghorn pullets, the beak was trimmed at 6 or 12 wk of age (av. body weights 1.92 and 2.04 lb resp.). Pullets trimmed at 6 wk gained weight until the 7th day after trimming, when they reached 2.08 lb. Pullets trimmed at 12 wk had lost 0.20 lb by the 7th day, and weighed 11.5% less than those trimmed at 6 wk. In the 2nd experiment, food consumption following trimming was determined.
