Effects of early and late feed restriction or feed withdrawal on growth performance, ascites and blood constituents of broiler chickens



Effects of early and late feed restriction or feed withdrawal on growth performance, ascites and blood constituents of broiler chickens



Acta Agriculturae Scandinavica Section A, Animal Science 54(3): 152-158



A study was conducted with male broilers to determine the effects of early and late feed restriction or feed withdrawal. In the experiment five treatments were represented by three replicate floor pens, each containing 20 broilers. The experimental procedure was a completely randomized design. The treatments were ad libitum (AL), 25% (FR-25) and 50% (FR-50) feed-restricted or 8 h (FW-8) and 16 h (FW-16) feed withdrawal regimes, respectively.
