1. In a 6-week experiment with broilers, the effect of diet supplementation, using prebiotic fructans, on the performance and biomechanical and geometrical parameters of the tibia and femur bones was evaluated. 2. A total of 240, 1-d-old, Ross 308 chickens were randomly assigned to 1 of 6 treatments, each comprising 5 replicate cages, with 8 birds (4 male and 4 female) per cage. A 2 x 3 factorial arrangement was employed, with two dietary concentrations of calcium and available phosphorus… CONTINUE READING
