Effect of housing density on egg production of hens in cages

Effect of housing density on egg production of hens in cages

Revista de la Facultad de Agronomia, Universidad del Zulia 9(4): 271-280

From 22 weeks of age, 11 254 hens were housed in cages allowing 600 or 400 cmsuperscript 2 floor space per bird. Housing density had no significant effect on egg production per hen housed, food conversion efficiency, mortality or culling.
