Experiments with broiler breeder hens were undertaken to determine effect of feeding time and environmental temperature on various production variables, body weight, and feed consumption. Two temperature treatments were used: low cyclic temperature (10 to 25 C), and high cyclic temperature (21 to 39 C). The three feeding treatments were: fed one daily meal either at 0700 h (Treatment 1) or 1800 h (Treatment 2), or one-half the daily amount at 0700 h and the other half at 1800 h (Treatment 3… CONTINUE READING
