Proper nutrition during critical stages in growth cycle results in better feed conversion, egg production
Broiler breeder management is an exciting challenge, but there are many variables that contribute to consistent flock performance. When assessing egg production, most people focus on body weight and body weight gains and compare this to a standard body weight curve. This is an ineffective technique because pullet body weight is a crude indicator of subsequent hen performance. Therefore, more variables must be considered when assessing these breeders.
