Growing and economical productivity in different stocking densities and slaughter-ages in the broiler production



Growing and economical productivity in different stocking densities and slaughter-ages in the broiler production



Veteriner Fakultesi Dergisi, Uludag Universitesi 14(1/2/3): 19-29



A total of 2880 Arbor Acres chicks were housed at 4 stocking densities, namely 10, 14, 18 and 22 chicks per square metre. In weeks 5, 6 and 7 body weights and carcass weights for birds at 10 and 14 birds/msuperscript 2 were much higher than for densities 18 and 22 birds/msuperscript 2. Male chicks grew more quickly than females in all periods and at all stocking densities. In weeks 6 and 7 the best feed conversion was achieved at 10 and 14 birds/msuperscript 2.
