Two experiments were conducted to determine the effect of early severe feed restriction in body weight (BW) of turkey broiler breeders. Experiment 1 consisted of 576 turkey breeder hen poults divided into 3 groups, N3 and N6 hens were feed restricted at 3 and 6 weeks of age at skip-a-day, respectively, and the control (NO). For experiment 2, the 722 turkey breeder hen poults were divided into 2 groups (CF and RF).
