Production Response of Athulya Layer Chicken to Dietary Energy Concentration and Feed Particle Size

Binoj Chacko, P. Anitha.


An experiment was carried out in 450 Athulya layer hens ( commercial strain cross of Single Combed White Leghorn) from 17 to 64 weeks of age to evaluate the influence of metabolizable energy (ME) levels (2200, 2400 and 2600 kcal/kg) and feed particle size (3.0, 5.0 and 7.0 mm) on production performance and economics in a 3x3 factorial design. All experimental diets were identical in calorie protein ratio. The results revealed statistically similar housed egg production and egg weight were observed among treatments. The daily feed intake and feed conversion ratio (FCR) value was significantly (p
