The relationship between meteorological changes and daily feed intake or shell strength of eggs of Leghorn hens



The relationship between meteorological changes and daily feed intake or shell strength of eggs of Leghorn hens



Canadian Journal of Animal Science 73(2): 465-469



Feed intake and egg measurements were recorded daily over a 56-d period from Leghorn pullets and force-molted hens, with 36 of each age. Meteorological conditions during the experiment were obtained from a nearby weather station. Regression analyses indicated that the daily variation in flock parameters reported in other studies may be partly due to the flock's response to weather conditions outside the hen house.
