Moulting is a complex process, induced by diet manipulation, which results in renewal of reproductive system and subsequent better production. Conventionally, moulting has been practised by utilising feed withdrawal in many developing countries, however, this has been associated with many drawbacks. Alternative types of moulting practices have been studied, however, these are not practised widely due to a range of undesirable effects. As a consequence of the beneficial effects on laying hens… Expand
PRODUCTIVE AND REPRODUCTIVE PERFORMANCE OF JAPANESE QUAILS AS INFLUENCED BY INDUCED MOULTING
This study evaluated the effect of moulting on the productive and reproductive performance of Japanese quails. A total of 324 females from three groups, comprising 108 females each from moulted, nonExpand
Zinc oxide as an effective mineral for induced moulting: Effects on post moult performance of laying hens in the humid tropics
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in order to achieve good post moult performance of laying hens in the humid tropics, farmers should practice the use of 1% ZnO inclusion per kg diet, as an effective method to achieve induced moulting. Expand
The Role of Zinc in Poultry Breeder and Hen Nutrition: an Update
TLDR
It is necessary to reevaluate the optimal Zn requirement for egg production as well as the embryonic development and offspring chick performance of breeder hens to maintain the beneficial effects of Zn nutrition for breeders and their progeny under stable conditions. Expand
Immunomodulation and strengthening of serum mineral profile by dietary supplementation of protein, probiotics and vitamins (C and E) in molted layer breeders.
TLDR
The molting technique is an economical and important management tool, used extensively in poultry industry to rejuvenate internal organs of birds for second and third cycle of production with an intention to improve their production efficiency. Expand
Effect of vitamins, protein level and probiotics on immune response of moulted male broiler breeders.
TLDR
Vitamin E is a better option for enhanced immune response in broiler breeders after zinc-induced moulting, and in vitro macrophage engulfment percentage in unopsonized conditions was significantly higher in vitamin E-supplemented group. Expand
The activity and use of zinc in poultry diets
TLDR
It is now recognised that Zn has a major role in antioxidation, growth and development, production, immunity and stress related issues, and Supplementation of Zn can improve growth, augment immunity, enhance antioxidant capacity, increase endocrine secretion and interact with other minerals in the gut. Expand
Zinc source modulates zootechnical characteristics, intestinal features, humoral response, and paraoxonase (PON1) activity in broilers
TLDR
It was concluded that the organic form of Zn was superior in improving the growth, histological features of intestines, humoral response, and PON1 activity in broiler. Expand
Performance traits and immune response of broiler chicks treated with zinc and ascorbic acid supplementation during cyclic heat stress
TLDR
The results indicated that the supplementation of Zn or AA alone or in combination improved the performance and immune status of broilers reared under heat stress. Expand
Effect of Dietary Supplementation of Zinc and Multi-Microbe Probiotic on Growth Traits and Alteration of Intestinal Architecture in Broiler
TLDR
Compared to the individual supplementation, the combined effect of Zn and probiotic mixture was superior in improving the growth performance and histomorphology of the intestine; however, the effect of two levels of ZN did not vary when combined with probiotic. Expand
Single and combined effects of peppermint and thyme essential oils on productive performance, egg quality traits, and blood parameters of laying hens reared under cold stress condition (6.8 ± 3 °C)
TLDR
It can be concluded that diet supplementation by combined form of PEO and TEO could have beneficial effects on performance parameters of hens reared under cold stress condition. Expand

Dynamics of innate immune response in Gallus domesticus using two methods of induced molting.
TLDR
The results validate the strengthened innate and acquired immune response during the second production cycle after Zn-induced molting instead of fasting and strengthen the ability of laying hen abdominal macrophages to defend against infection. Expand
Dynamics of Macrophages in Laying Hens during Second and Third Production Cycles after Zinc Induced Molting
TLDR
The results validate the strengthened immune response during the 2nd production cycle after zinc-induced molting and show a positive correlation with an increase in egg production. Expand
Role of dietary zinc in heat-stressed poultry: a review.
TLDR
This work compiles past and present information about the role of Zn in heat-stressed poultry health, related to its antioxidant role and its participation in the antioxidant defense system. Expand
Changes in luteinizing hormone-containing gonadotrophs after moulting induced by fasting and zinc in laying hens (Gallus domesticus).
TLDR
It was showed that egg production and egg weight increased significantly after zinc- induced moult when compared with fasting-induced moult, and the results validate the use of ovine LHbeta antibodies for the IHC localization of chicken LH gonadotrophs. Expand
Effects of high zinc diets using zinc propionate on molt induction, organs, and postmolt egg production and quality in laying hens.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that feeding a Zn propionate (1% zinc)-supplemented diet can induce molt in 66-wk-old hens. Expand
Chemical and Non-chemical Molting Methods as Alternatives to Continuous Feed Withdrawal in Laying Hens
TLDR
The results indicated that hens subjected to CFR, whole cotton seed and zinc supplemented diet went out of production on Day 6, Day 7 and Day 14, respectively and the egg production, egg mass and egg quality criteria were not different among the treatments. Expand
Comparison of zinc acetate and propionate addition on gastrointestinal tract fermentation and susceptibility of laying hens to Salmonella enteritidis during forced molt.
TLDR
At the zinc concentration used in these studies, the zinc dietary regimens may be effective for reducing the risk of SE during induced molt. Expand

TLDR
The process of molting, and the subsequent recovery from the molt, may be viewed as a complex physiological constellation, induced by environmental and nutritional cues, involving endocrine systems, reproductive tissue structure and function, lymphoid structure, and immune function. Expand
High doses of dietary zinc induce cytokines, chemokines, and apoptosis in reproductive tissues during regression
TLDR
A high dose of dietary zinc seems to induce reproductive regression via the upregulation of cytokines and chemokines, the suppression of feed intake, and the increase in serum corticosterone, resulting finally in the apoptosis of reproductive tissues. Expand
Effect of zinc toxicity in laying white leghorn pullets and hens.
TLDR
Two experiments involving 124 Single Comb White Leghorn laying pullets and hens were conducted to determine the effect of zinc toxicity on bird performance and 2% supplemental zinc fed for 5 days significantly improved hen but not pullet egg weight. Expand
