Data on ammonia (NH3) emissions from pullets (hens <18 weeks of>age) are non-existent despite the large differences in nutritional and environmental conditions between raising pullets and laying hens. Different stocking densities (SDs) in housing the birds may be used according to certain industry guidelines on production; however, information concerning the impact of SD on properties of accumulated manure and thus NH3 emissions is limited in the literature. It was hypothesized that bird SD… CONTINUE READING
