Effect of house type on growth performance , litter quality and incidence of foot lesions in broiler chickens reared in varying stocking density
To evaluate the effect of different stocking density on broiler performance two repeated experiments were conducted in a conventional and an environmentally controlled house using a total of 10,232Expand
Effects of a high dose of microbial phytase and myo‐inositol supplementation on growth performance, tibia mineralization, nutrient digestibility, litter moisture content, and foot problems in broiler
Reducing the Ca level or supplementation of inositol of NC diet can correct some the negative effects of feeding a NC diet confirming the negative effect of a wide Ca: P ratio in a P‐deficient diet and suggesting thatinositol may play a role in the response to phytase addition. Expand
Effects of using eucalyptus (Eucalyptusglobulus L.) leaf powder and its essential oil on growth performance and immune response of broiler chickens.
Dietary EEO has the potential to enhance immune response of broiler chickens and greater primary antibody response to sheep red blood cells compared to the control, but differences in secondary antibody response were not significant. Expand
The Effects of purslane (Portulaca oleracea L.) powder on growth performance, carcass characteristics, antioxidant status, and blood metabolites in broiler chickens
It is indicated that dietary inclusion of POP had no effect on broiler chickens body weight and body weight gain, whereas feed intake decreased compared to control, and POP improved feed efficiency and antioxidant status and can be considered as a feed additive in broilers. Expand
Short communication: Evaluation of the physical and chemical properties of some agricultural wastes as poultry litter material
The physical and chemical properties of some agricultural wastes included wheat straw, sugarcane bagasse, sugarcane peat; rice hulls as well as wood sheaving and sawdust as the control wereExpand
Effect of a high dose of exogenous phytase and supplementary myo-inositol on mineral solubility of broiler digesta and diets subjected to in vitro digestion assay.
Correlations were noted between the solubility of P in the in vitro assay and that in the gizzard and jejunal digesta, and also with bird performance, confirms the usefulness of in vitro test. Expand
Effects of dietary supplementation of Ferulago angulata (Schlecht.) Boiss powder on growth performance, carcass characteristics, and gut microflora and pH in broiler chicks
The results suggested that the FA powder could be used as a dietary supplement for improving the growth performance and carcass characteristics of broilers. Expand
Evaluation of Growth Performance, Carcass Characteristics, Litter Quality and Foot Lesions of Broilers Reared under High Stocking Densities
In conclusion, based on the obtained results of this study, 20 birds/m2 of floor space was an appropriate density for rearing broilers in an environmentally controlled broiler house. Expand
Comparison of Broiler Performance in Two Conventional and Environmentally Controlled Modern Broiler Houses at Tropics
The purpose of this study was to evaluate broiler performance, environmental conditions and litter quality in two conventional and environmentally controlled condition modern broiler houses. TwoExpand
