Effect of reducing calcium and supplemented phosphorus levels on performance and bone parameters of broiler chicks



Effect of reducing calcium and supplemented phosphorus levels on performance and bone parameters of broiler chicks



Egyptian Poultry Science Journal 18(1): 47-60



Two experiments were conducted to study the effects of reducing Ca and supplemented non-phytate P (NPP) on performance and some bone parameters of broiler chicks. In the first experiment, 240 Arbor Acres broiler chickens were assigned to 4 starter-grower diets to meet nutrient requirements as recommended by the National Research Council (NRC) (1994) and contained 0.6, 0.5, 0.4 or 0.3% NPP. Chickens were fed on the diets ad libitum from 1 to 35 days of age.
