Effect of environmental temperature during the first week of brooding period on broiler chick body weight, viscera and bone development



Effect of environmental temperature during the first week of brooding period on broiler chick body weight, viscera and bone development



Revista Brasileira de Ciencia Avicola 4(1): 19-26



This study was conducted to assess the development of broiler chicks during the first week post-hatching when reared at 3 different environmental temperatures. A total of 480 day-old chicks were placed in 3 environmentally controlled rooms (20, 25, and 35 degrees C) from 1 to 7 days of age. Body weight gain, feed and water intake, as well as liver, gizzard, heart, yolk sac, and bursa of Fabricius weights were measured daily.
