The effect of the age of chicks on the metabolizable energy and protein digestibility of the diet


The effect of the age of chicks on the metabolizable energy and protein digestibility of the diet



Rivista di Avicoltura 57(10): 71-73



Diets containing in the DM 24.6% crude protein and gross energy 19.35 MJ/kg were given to 400 male chickens at 4, 5 or 6 weeks old. For each age group, diets provided; metabolizable energy (ME) 12.16, 12.19 and 12.65 MJ/kg, ME corrected for nitrogen 11.62, 11.55 and 12.01 MJ/kg, and digestible protein 174.6, 175.6 and 177.8 g/kg, respectively.
