Comparison of four methods of inducing moult in heavy breeders on subsequent egg production and hatchability



Comparison of four methods of inducing moult in heavy breeders on subsequent egg production and hatchability



Zootecnica International ( 3): 38-41



Moult was induced in 33 500 broiler breeding hens, aged 76 wk, by (1) feed withdrawal for 10 days, followed by feeding of cracked wheat for 3 wk (conventional method), (2) ad lib. feeding of layer diet, with the addition of 2% zinc for 6 days, (3) feed withdrawal for 10 days (fast moult) or (4) as group (3), followed by pullet grower ration for 3 wk.
