This study was conducted to determine the effects of adding DL-methionine (Met) in low-protein diet (Low-CP; 14% CP) on egg production, reproductive organs, abdominal fat and chemical liver composition of laying hens under tropical conditions. Four hundred and eighty commercial laying hens (Isa-brown) during 24-44 weeks of age were fed with the Low-CP diet containing 0.26, 0.30, 0.38 or 0.44% Met. Dietary protein 16% CP with 0.38% Met was offered as the positive control group. The results… CONTINUE READING
