Exogenous estradiol improves shell strength in laying hens at the end of the laying period

BACKGROUND Cracked shells, due to age related reduction of shell quality, are a costly problem for the industry. Parallel to reduced shell quality the skeleton becomes brittle resulting in bone fractures. Calcium, a main prerequisite for both eggshell and bone, is regulated by estrogen in a complex manner. The effects of estrogen, given in a low continuous dose, were studied regarding factors i...

Effect of Wet Feeding on Feed Conversion Efficiency in Laying Hens during Summer Season

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of wet feeding on feed conversion efficiency in laying hens during summer season. The study was carried out on 192 pullets of eight weeks age (distributed to four groups). The feed offered to chicks consisted of starter diet up to 8 weeks of age and grower diet up to 20 weeks of age. From 20 weeks onwards, birds were provided with layer diet u...

Some More Consequences of the Intermittent Feeding of Particulate Calcium to Laying Hens

The commercial laying hen has demonstrated appetites for energy, protein and calcium. Compounded layer diets are balanced with respect to energy as it is generally considered that the energy appetite of the bird is dominant. The current practice of feeding compounded diets has been shown to be inefficient where environmental or disease status alters the bird’s energy metabolism (Mastika, 1987; ...
