Estimation of the energy needs of young broiler chicks






Zootechnica International 16(3): 56-59

Estimation of the energy needs of young broiler chicks

From 1 day old 4 replicate groups of 10 Cobb broiler chickens were given diets to supply USA National Research Council (NRC) recommendations for 8 weeks or NRC specifications for age 0 to 3 weeks (21.6% protein, 3080 kcal/kg), 3 to 6 weeks (19.5% protein, 3200 kcal/kg) or 6 to 9 weeks (18.3% protein, 3200 kcal/kg). Groups of 6 were killed at weekly intervals. The results were fitted with appropriate equations by a non-linear least-square procedure.
