The aim of this study was to examine the main and interaction effects of 3 dietary nutrient densities (low-, medium-, high-density), 2 feed forms (mash, pellet), and 2 lighting programs (20L:4D, 12L:12D) on the walking ability and skeletal quality of broiler chickens raised to a young age (35 d). Forty-eight birds per treatment (nutrient density x feed form x lighting program subclass) were randomly selected (0 d) for assessment of their gait score (GS) and BW at 11, 18, 25, and 32 d.
