The short-term effects of delayed feeding (DF) for 2 d posthatching were measured in neonate chicks and compared to early feeding (EF). Chicks from 10 independent families were used in this study to determine whether genetic background control of growth may be influenced by EF and DF. Early feeding maintained significant interfamily body weight variations from hatch to 4 d of age, whereas there were no significant differences from 1 d of age when feeding was delayed to 48 h posthatching. These… CONTINUE READING
