Wheat sample affects growth performance and the apparent metabolisable energy value for broiler chickens.

Br Poult Sci 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

a The National Institute of Poultry Husbandry , Harper Adams University , Newport, Shropshire , UK.

The aim of this study was to examine chemical composition, quality characteristics, apparent metabolisable energy (AME) and nutrient utilisation of wheat samples currently available to the UK poultry industry and their effect on broiler growth performance. Seventeen current UK wheat samples were used to formulate 17 diets, all of which included 670 g/kg of each wheat sample and 330 g/kg of a balancer feed. Eight hundred (800), day old male Ross 308 broilers were allocated randomly to 160 raised floor pens. Read More

The ranked importance of dietary factors influencing the performance of broiler chickens offered phytase-supplemented diets by the Plackett-Burman screening design.

Br Poult Sci 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

a Poultry Research Foundation within The University of Sydney , Camden , NSW , Australia.

The objective of the present study was to rank the importance of the following dietary factors; canola meal, wheat, whole barley, digestible lysine, phytate-P, calcium, available P, sodium and three NSP-degrading feed enzymes. Their influence on growth performance, gastro-intestinal tract parameters, energy utilisation, ileal N digestibility and disappearance rates were determined via the Plackett-Burman design in broiler chickens offered phytase-supplemented diets. The eleven dietary factors were assigned two levels in the Plackett-Burman design matrix. Read More

THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENT DIETARY LEVELS OF HYBRID RYE AND XYLANASE ADDITION ON THE PERFORMANCE AND EGG QUALITY IN LAYING HENS.

Br Poult Sci 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

f Department of Animal Nutrition and Dietetics, Faculty of Animal Sciences , University of Agriculture in Kraków , al. Mickiewicza 24/28, 30-059 Krakow , Poland.

In this study, 240 ISA Brown hens were fed diets containing different levels of hybrid rye, and the influence of xylanase addition on laying performance and egg quality was evaluated. Birds were allocated to 10 treatment groups with 12 replicates (cages) of two hens and were fed, from week 26 to 50, isocaloric and isonitrogenous experimental diets. A 5 × 2 experimental arrangement was applied, using diets with increasing level of rye (0%, 10%, 15%, 20%, or 25%) with or without xylanase supplementation (200 mg/kg of feed; Ronozyme WX (CT) with minimum xylanase activity of 1,000 FXU/g).

a No.15 Longzihu University Area, Zhengdong New District, College of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine, Henan Agricultural University , Zhengzhou 450046 , China.

The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of different starch sources (corn, wheat, and rice) on the blood glucose level, glycogen content of liver and muscle, expression of GSK-3β and FAS mRNA, abdominal fat weight and abdominal fat deposition in broiler chickens. A total of 360, one-day-old AA broiler chickens were randomly assigned to three treatment groups, each with six replicates, consisting of 20 chickens per replicate, and fed either a corn-, wheat- or rice-based diet for21 days. The chickens were then subdivided into groups A and B, and the chickens in these two subgroups were processed or sampled for 28 days, respectively. Read More

c College of Animal Science and Technology , Northeast Agricultural University , Harbin , Heilongjiang , China.

1. During the long history of chicken domestication, eyelid colour, like skin colour and shank colour, has been one of the physical traits of Chinese indigenous chickens that influence consumer buying behaviour. In China, the Lindian chicken, which has coloured feathers, is renowned for the appetizing flavour of its meat and eggs, and its eyelid colours vary from deep (black) to light shades (light yellow).
