Heat stress in summer usually causes descending performance and increasing mortality of broiler chicks. An experiment was conducted through adding ammonium chloride (AC) to broilers diets to examine the effect of the additive on their heat stress. 270 broiler chicks one day posthatching were randomly assigned to five groups with three replicates per treatment: (1) Positive control, 21%CP; (2) Positive control ration+0.62% ammonium chloride; (3) Negative control, 19%CP; (4) Negative control… CONTINUE READING
