Effects of Early Feeding Time Post-hatch on Growth, Organ Development, and Blood Biochemical Profile in Broiler Chickens
Canadian Journal of Animal Science
The effects of early feeding time on growth performance, organ weight, blood biochemical, and leukocyte profile were investigated in post-hatch broiler chickens to 35 days of age. From 7 d to 21 d, early feeding (3 h after hatching) had a significant (p < 0.01) effect on body weight gain, and at 14 d, chicks fed 3 and 12 h after hatching were significantly heavier (p < 0.01) than those fed later. At 7 d, feed intake was significantly higher (p < 0.01) among chicks fed 3 and 12 h after hatching.doi:10.1139/cjas-2017-0030 fatcat:nashusziargrrlwbbusjogqgji
