The effect of moult on egg weight in laying hens receiving various levels of dietary linoleic acid



The effect of moult on egg weight in laying hens receiving various levels of dietary linoleic acid



Proceedings 1999 Australian Poultry Science Symposium Volume No 11, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, February 1999: 150-153



This study investigated changes in egg weight following a moult in 6 strains of laying hens (~60 hens per strain) which were on low (6 g/kg), control (13 g/kg) or high (30 g/kg) concentrations of dietary linoleic acid throughout lay and after the moult. Eggs were collected over 2-day periods from point of lay to 50% production (14-20 weeks of age) and then at intervals from 23 to 81 weeks of age. At 69 weeks of age, birds were fed barley and shell grit to induce moulting.
