Effect of dietary energy and NSP concentration and particle size of NSP on eating behaviour, feather pecking behaviour and performance of laying hens

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

An experiment with 588 ISA Brown layer strains was conducted to measure the effect of dietary energy (11.8 versus 10.6 MJ/kg) and NSP (133 versus 195 g/kg) concentration and particle size of the NSP fraction (fine versus coarse) on eating behaviour, feather pecking behaviour and eggperformance of laying hens from 18 to 40 weeks of age. 7 experimental diets were tested, each replicated 7 times
