Abstract: -An experiment employing three hundred and twenty 81-week-old Lohmann LSL commercial-breed hens was conducted to compare alternative induced-molting methods with the conventional method (fasting). Induced molting lasted 28 days at most, production and quality being monitored for four periods of 28 days thereafter. A completely randomized experimental design with five treatments, eight replicates of eight birds each per plot was adopted. The following experimental treatments were applied until a loss of 26% of … Show more

“…The corresponding values for indigenous hens were 1.00 and 1.80 kg and 1.25 and 1.60 kg, respectively. Hens are usually forced to moult towards the end of their first laying cycle due to ageing and poor egg production (Moustafa et al, 2010;Santos et al, 2014). In Nigeria, such flocks are disposed and replaced with new stocks.…”

“…Egg production in laying flocks is limited by age and decreases as hen ages. The aging process and cessation of egg production initiate natural moulting which usually lasts for about 4 months (Santos et al, 2014). Moulting is therefore a major event in the annual life cycle of the domestic chicken and other avian species (Aygun and Olgun, 2010).…”

“…Moulting refers to periodic shedding and feather replacement, coinciding with a decrease in the reproductive efficiency function (Berry, 2003) and body weight loss of about 25% (Mrosovsky and Sherry, 1980). These include high dietary zinc supplementation (Sandhu et al, 2006), low calcium (Breeding et al, 1992) and low sodium diets (Berry and Brake, 1985), wheat middling (Biggs et al, 2003), using barley (Onbasilar and Erol, 2007), cottonseed meals (Davis et al, 2002), jojoba meal (Vermaut et al, 1997), alfalfa (Donalson et al, 2005;Landers et al, 2005;Aygun and Olgun, 2010), oat (Fletcher et al, 1981;Aygun and Yetisir, 2009) and rice bran (Santos et al, 2014) in diets. This practice became the most adopted tool to maintain the production potential of laying hens until the early eighties.…”
