Effect of laying house design and cage placement on egg laying and egg weight in laying hens



Effect of laying house design and cage placement on egg laying and egg weight in laying hens



Revista de la Facultad de Agronomia, Universidad del Zulia 20(3): 339-351



In order to evaluate the effect of laying house type (different width, with open easel (CA) or closed easel (CC)) on egg laying and egg weight, a 10 month study was performed in a commercial farm with 124 000 black sex-link laying hens. The outer lateral rows of the laying house were identified as lateral rows (HL) and the rows in the middle of the house as central rows (HC).
