Note on the effect of cage housing on fertility, body weight and mortality of cockerels



Note on the effect of cage housing on fertility, body weight and mortality of cockerels



Canad. J. Anim. Sci 42: 120-122



Using 140 sexually mature Ottawa Meat Control Strain cockerels in 1959 and 239 in 1960, individual cage management was compared with conventional laying house management, where are housed with pullets, and, in 1960 only, with unisexual floor pen management. Fertility was not adversely affected when were individually caged for periods up to 4 mths., weight gains were significantly greater, and there were no losses from fighting or treading.
