Abstract

Up to 97% of laying hens housed in aviary systems are affected by keel bone fractures. Due to the scope of the problem, multiple efforts investigating causes and consequences of fractures have been conducted. The most frequently used techniques to detect fractures lack accuracy and provide only...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the prediction potential of a computer tomography (CT) data collection protocol for determining total body composition used for analysis of tibiotarsal bone quality features. The CT image acquisition was performed on 54 healthy TETRA SL genotype laying ...

Abstract

In commercial situations, laying hens must negotiate levels to reach resources such as food, water and litter. Providing ramps in aviary systems reduces collisions and resultant keel bone fractures in adults. We investigated whether providing ramps during rear improved the ability of birds to...

Abstract

Calcium and phosphorus are essential minerals for some important biochemical functions and bone integrity. Deficiency in rations or poor absorption of these minerals is an important problem in poultry nutrition, especially high producing laying hens and broilers, leading to economic losses such as...

Abstract

In commercial layer breeding, extensive gene pools are tested and selected for market requirements which must be anticipated at least five years ahead. Animal welfare and cage-free housing dominate future needs of the market. Stronger shells for longer production cycles without moulting have to be...

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate limestone particle size (LPS) in 2 strains of laying hens housed in conventional cages or aviaries on bone integrity. Lohmann Brown and Bovan White pullet chicks were started in equal numbers on the floor or in battery brooders and were intermingled throughout...

Abstract

Keel fractures represent a major productivity and welfare issue for the laying hen industry with greater than 50% of birds in recent surveys across various commercial operations and nations exhibiting some form of damage by end of lay. While the causes are likely multifactorial and influenced by...
