Abstract

Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows: A number of variables govern the amount of feed consumed daily by full-fed laying hens. Most important are body weight, ambient temperature, energy level of the feed, and egg production rate. A change in any one of these variables causes a compensatory change in feed intake as the birds attempt to adjust energy consumption to energy needs. But chickens are not all equally proficient in making that adjustment.
