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 10,232 broiler chickens. In each experiment, a total of 5,116 one-day old Ross 308 broiler chickens were randomly distributed to 16 floor pens arranged within each house at density of 16, 18, 20 or 22 birds/m. Results showed that the broiler chickens grown in environmentally controlled house had greater (p… Expand

The European performance indicators of broiler chickens as influenced by stocking density and sex
TLDR
From the results of this study it can be concluded that broiler chicks can be stocked up to 22 chickens m2, as far as required standards are assured. Expand
Studies on some Welfare Aspects of Broilers Reared Under Different Stocking Densities
TLDR
Results showed that litter quality was deteriorated at HD group especially at the 4 th, 5 th and 6 th week of the growing cycle where the all quality parameter together were the worst. Expand
Supplemental boric acid does not prevent the development of footpad dermatitis in broilers subjected to high stocking density
TLDR
Dietary boric acid was ineffective against FPD in broiler chickens although it improved the litter quality by lowering the litter pH and NH3 volatilization. Expand
Microclimate, Body Weight Uniformity, Body Temperature, and Footpad Dermatitis in Broiler Chickens Reared in Commercial Poultry Houses in Hot and Humid Tropical Climates
TLDR
The microclimate variables had various trends along the length of broiler houses, including increasing AT, heat index, and ammonia linearly increased from the front end to the rear end of the houses and increasing RH and AV were associated with increasing FPD. Expand
Effect of bedding materials and stocking density on growth performance, carcass characteristics, and contact dermatitis in broiler chickens
TLDR
The stocking density of 10 chicks/m was suitable on chicken rearing and promoted on growth performance better than 15 chicks/ m, and T4 could be used successfully reared on broiler production. Expand
Maximising Productivity and Eliminating Campylobacter in Broilers by Manipulating Stocking Density and Population Structure Using ‘Biosecurity Cubes’
This study investigates the effect of stocking density and population dynamics on broiler growth rates and productivity, while further validating the ability of the biosecurity cubes (BC) to protectExpand
Resource use efficiency of broiler production in tunnel-ventilated environmental control vis-à-vis open-sided conventional shed during summer
TLDR
Final body weight, body weight gain, feed intake were significantly higher and FCR, PER and EER were significantly better in ECBH than OSCBH even at 10% increase in stocking density (T2); Margin of receipt in T2 in ECBh from sale of live bird/unit area and kilogram live weight per unit area was maximum.

A comparison of production and economic performances of broilers raised under naturally ventilated open-house and tunnel ventilated closed-house systems in Sri Lanka.
The objective of this study was to compare production and economic performances of broilers raised under naturally ven-tilated open house (OH) and tunnel ventilated-closed house (CH) conditions inExpand
STUDY OF THE LOCATION OF BIRDS INSIDE THE BREEDING HALL OF BROILERS ROSE 308 AND ITS EFFECT ON ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS USING A DOCUMENTED DATA SYSTEM
The location inside the hall is the parts or areas of the dormitory of the animal husbandry and can be divided into the beginning, middle and end and these areas have environmental differences inExpand
Influence of farm management on the dynamics of Salmonella enterica serovar Infantis shedding and antibiotic resistance during the growing period of broiler chickens.
TLDR
The acquisition ofAMR by S. Infantis starts at the onset of the production cycle and is maintained until the end, demonstrating the importance of transmission of AMR in zoonotic bacteria at farm level. Expand

Stocking density affects the growth performance of broilers in a sex-dependent fashion.
TLDR
The result indicated that stocking density had a more severe effect on the growth of male broilers before 35 d of age, suggesting that the deteriorated effect of high stocking density is sex and age dependent. Expand
Stocking density effects on male broilers grown to 1.8 kilograms of body weight.
TLDR
It is concluded that increasing stocking density beyond 30 kg of BW/m2 adversely affects growth responses and meat yield of broilers grown to 1.8 kg but does not alter physiological stress indicators. Expand
Stocking density effects on growth performance and processing yields of heavy broilers.
TLDR
The results indicate that increasing the density beyond 30 kg/m2 elicited some negative effects on live performance of heavy broilers, partially explained by less feed consumption. Expand
Effect of genotype and stocking density on broiler performance during two subtropical seasons
TLDR
It is suggested that for profitable broiler production in the tropics and subtropics Ross 308 reared at stocking density of 30 kg BW/m2 preferably in winter be considered. Expand
Survey of chicken rearing conditions in Italy: effects of litter quality and stocking density on productivity, foot dermatitis and carcase injuries
TLDR
Season markedly influenced broiler welfare status, with the worst score collected in winter cycles, when the recommended limit of 50 points for foot pad dermatitis was exceeded and stocking density was not a straightforward indicator for bird welfare. Expand
Carcass characteristics of commercial broilers reared under varying stocking densities.
Two hundred and forty numbers of straight run commercial (vencobb-100) broiler chicks were reared under varying stocking densities from 0 to 42 days of age to study their effect on various carcassExpand
Placement Density Influences Broiler Carcass Grade and Meat Yields
TLDR
It is confirmed that placement density can impact carcass quality, yield, and live performance, and breast fillet yield was reduced at the highest density in male birds, while this and other yield parameters were not influenced in females. Expand
Broiler performance, body weight variance, feed and water intake, and carcass quality at different stocking densities.
TLDR
It was concluded high yield per unit area with good carcass quality could be achieved when ventilation rate and air circulation were adequate and broilers per unit of floor space was highest. Expand
Sodium Bicarbonate and Broiler Performance at High Stocking Densities in a Tropical Environment
Abstract Two trials attempted to evaluate the effect of the addition of 0.5% sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) to the diet of broilers raised at high stocking densities during the hot and humid month inExpand
Effect of stocking density on litter microbial load in broiler chickens.
TLDR
Results show that the stocking density had no significant effect on microbial count in any of the litter samples and it can be concluded that stocking density changing from 10 to 17 birds/m 2 did not affect microbial loads of the broiler litters. Expand
