How to increase broiler feed intake

When birds do not consume enough feed, there are six steps we can take to entice them to eat more.

We have been trained to assume modern broilers will consume the most feed possible when given a diet of adequate nutritional specifications. Indeed, this might be the case under ideal conditions, such as those employed by geneticists to develop modern broilers. And when the feed is ideally balanced, something experienced nutritionists can achieve easily, then feed conversion rate will be optimal — hopefully leading to maximal profitability.
