The effects of dietary calcium and phosphorus levels on the performance of pullets during the growing and subsequent laying periods in the hot humid tropics



The effects of dietary calcium and phosphorus levels on the performance of pullets during the growing and subsequent laying periods in the hot humid tropics



Bulletin of Animal Health and Production in Africa 36(1): 15-24



During the growing and laying period pullets were given diets containing calcium 4, 6, 8 and 10 g/kg and phosphorus 3, 4, 5 and 6 g/kg. The diet containing Ca and P at 4 and 3 g/kg was totally inadequate for the daily requirements of growing pullets. To meet the daily demand for Ca and P for optimum growth performance, the diet should contain Ca at least 6 g/kg and P 4 g/kg (available P 2.39 g) but apparently not more than 8 and 5 g/kg, respectively.
