Structurally specific very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) particles are presumed to redirect VLDL uptake during yolk deposition. Egg production is an energy intensive process, but energy excess negatively affects egg production. This study sought to determine whether overfeeding changed hen lipoprotein profiles, and if so, whether changes were related to egg production. Overfeeding caused 33% of hens to stop yolk deposition and reabsorb unovulated follicles (involute). VLDL of control hens… CONTINUE READING
