The frequency of neck movements in laying hens and the improbability of cage abrasion causing feather wear/

, : The frequency of neck movements in laying hens and the improbability of cage abrasion causing feather wear/. British Poultry Science 19(3): 289-294

Three types of movement were recognized: neck through, neck up and neck shake. Neck shake was the only movement frequent enough to be capable of producing severe abrasion of the neck feathers. Patterns of damage to neck feathers in individually-caged hens were such that most could not be satisfactorily accounted for by abrasion against the cage front. Removal of feathers by neighboring birds was postulated as the most probable cause of feather loss.

The effect of nitrogen phosphorus and potassium on the growth, yield components, yield and nutrient contents of soybeans (Glycine max L. Merril). In 1973-4, soyabean cv. C 6 was grown on a sandy clay loam and given all combinations of 30 or 40 lb N, 30 or 40 lb P2O5 and 30 or 40 lb K2O/ac. Highest seed yield of 1.68 t/ha was given by 40 lb N + 40 lb P2O5 + 40 lb K2O, compared with yields of...
