Exercise floors for broiler fattening

Zuchtungskunde 61(2): 152-163

From hatching to slaughter an unspecified number of broilers of 2 strains were housed (1) on deep litter (controls), (2) on deep litter with a wooden ramp between the feeding troughs and water supply, (3) on a trampoline floor consisting of plastic strips at 12-mm intervals on a base of wood and metal tubes, (4) on a plastic-covered perforated metal floor or (5) on a floor similar to that in group 4, but with half of it covered with deep litter.
