Dietary protein and energy requirements of caged layers

Dietary protein and energy requirements of caged layers

Indian Journal of Poultry Science 24(2): 86-93

To assess protein and energy requirements of caged laying hens, 192 point of lay hybrid Single Comb White Leghorn hens were given for 12, 28-day periods diets with 14, 16, 18 and 20% protein and metabolizable energy 2400, 2500, 2600 and 2700 kcal/kg. Feed intake and body weight gain were not influenced by protein and energy supply, but egg production was influenced (P<0.01) by protein supply.
