Broiler chicks 5 to 7 weeks of age were subjected to a constant cool (14 +/- 1 C) or hot (31 +/- 1 tc) environment and fed diets varying in fat level and energy and nutrient density. Chicks gained significantly (P less than or equal to .01) more body weight in the cool than in the hot environment. In both environments chicks fed high fat or high fat-high density diets gained more weight than those fed diets low in fat, and there was no diet X temperature interaction. When temperatures were… CONTINUE READING
