Breeder and Hatchery Factors Impact Broiler Performance
New research presented at the International Poultry Scientific Forum in Atlanta, Georgia, US, earlier this year explored the effects of broiler breeder and hatchery management on the hatchability of chicks and subsequent broiler performance....
Review of “Long Crower Chickens” as Poultry Genetic Resources in Indonesia
Researchers in Indonesia have analysed the sounds made by four native chicken breeds, which are valued for their melodious crows in chicken "singing" contests....
Brief Review on Local Chicken Breeds in Korea
Comparing the white-mini broiler, Woorimatdag, Silky fowl and Hanhyu-3-ho, researchers in Seoul report some signficant differences in terms of growth rate and breast meat percentage....
Colibacillosis in Layers: an Overview
A review of the aetiology, routes of transmission, clinical signs, diagnosis and intervention strategies against colibacillosis in pullets and laying hens from Hy-Line International. ...
Effect of Maternal Vitamin D Source on Broiler Hatching Egg Quality, Hatchability and Progeny
A reduction in embryonic mortality was observed in a field trial in Canada when broiler breeders received additional 25-hydroxy vitamin D in the drinking water but the long-term effects were negligible on the performance or bone strength of the offspring....
Bobwhite Quail Production 1
Advice on the production of bobwhite quail from Professor Peter A. Skewes of Clemson University and Professor Emeritus Henry R. Wilson of the University of Florida; Florida Cooperative Extension Service. This article offers general advice and information...
Study of Kampung Chicken Resistance to Salmonella enteritidis
A new study from Indonesia reveals that the local Kampung chicken are resistant to Salmonella enteritidis infection, which makes their eggs more suitable for a local speciality made with raw eggs....
Enterobacteriaceae and Salmonella Recovered from Non-sanitised and Sanitised Broiler Hatching Eggs
Applying a sanitiser was effective in reducing the numbers of Enterobacteria on hatching eggs, a new study by the Agricultural Research Service and University of Georgia has shown, while the number of Salmonella was so low that it was difficult to judge...
Poultry CRC Broiler Breeder Research in a Commercial Setting
Poultry CRC-supported PhD student, Sarah Weaver, at the University of Adelaide in Austalia in researching the relationship between breeder hen environment and subsequent broiler chick performance....
Effect of Monochromatic LED Light on Reproductive Traits of Laying Hens
New research from China suggests that light colour can affect egg production as well as egg weight, shape, composition, fertility and hatchability....
Effect of Feeder Space During Growing and Laying Periods and Feeding Rate on Broiler Breeder Female Reproduction
A study at North Carolina State University has new light on the effects of feeder management during the rearing and laying phases on broiler breeder performance, revealing that females given similar feeder space during both phases produced the most eggs...
Bacterial Chondronecrosis with Osteomyelitis in Broilers: Influence of Sire and Sex-separate Rearing
Two experiments at the University of Arkansas reveal a significant effect of sire line on the incidence of the leg condition, bacterial chondronecrosis with osteomyelitis (BCO) in broilers, especially after six weeks of age. Rearing the sexes separately...
Controlling Body Weight of Turkey Breeder Hens Without Feed Restriction
A researcher at Iowa State University was able to control turkey hen bodyweight by ad-libitum feeding of a diet of lower nutrient content during the rearing period, without using physical feed restriction. The lighter hens produced more eggs while the...
Understanding the Role of the Skeleton in Egg Production
A guide to bone biology in the laying hen is explained by Hy-Line....
Brooding Temperatures and Heating Costs
Michael Czarick (Extension Engineer) and Brian Fairchild (Extension Poultry Specialist) at the University of Georgia show how heating costs for broiler growing are primarily determined by outside temperature and house condition....
