1. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of cold-pelleting, the length of the fasting period before feeding of the test diet and the nature of the test diet on apparent ileal nitrogen (N) digestibility in the broiler chicken. 2. Four-week-old broiler chickens were given a pelleted or non-pelleted maize/soyabean meal (basal) diet. The birds were starved for 24 h, given a single test meal (25 g) by intubation and killed 4 h after the start of feeding by administration of a… CONTINUE READING
