Effect of different forced moulting programmes on the main production parameters in commercial laying hens

Effect of different forced moulting programmes on the main production parameters in commercial laying hens

Veteriner Fakultesi Dergisi, Uludag Universitesi 20(3): 39-44

1093 hens from a commercial cross (Nick Brown), 86 weeks of age, were used to determine the effects of different forced moulting programmes on production. The hens were divided into 1 control and 2 treatment groups. The hens in the control group were fed throughout the experiment with commercial layer ration. The 1st treatment group was fed a whole-grain barley feed during the first 10 days and then fed a commercial layer ration from day 11 to the end of the experiment.
