Nutritional factors of laying rate in laying hens
Dec 10, 2018

The protein content in diet is directly related to the protein content in eggs, which affects the quality of eggs. In addition, adequate protein is also an important guarantee to maintain a higher laying rate of laying hens. It is difficult for laying hens to synthesize many kinds of amino acids. Therefore, many kinds of amino acids needed for laying hens'life activities are obtained from feed, especially some restrictive amino acids, such as methionine and lysine. In addition to ensuring amino acids in the diet, attention should also be paid to ensuring the balance of various amino acids in the diet. Only in this way can the laying rate of laying hens be effectively improved. In addition, the balance of amino acid and protein intake should be well controlled. Otherwise, not only the increase of egg production rate is unfavorable, but also the damage of liver and kidney function of laying hens will be caused, and the cost of breeding will be increased.

Minerals and vitamins play an important role in ensuring the laying performance of laying hens. Lack of either of these nutrients will inevitably lead to a decline in egg production. For example, the content and proportion of calcium and phosphorus are related to the formation of eggshells. Lack of calcium can increase the number of soft-shelled eggs, thin-shelled eggs and no-shelled eggs, and decrease the egg-laying rate. In addition, lack of calcium can also lead to cartilage disease in laying hens, which will also affect the egg-laying rate. Lack of vitamin D will affect the absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus, thus affecting the laying rate of laying hens.

Other nutrients. In addition to the above basic nutrients will have a great impact on the laying rate of laying hens, other nutritional factors will also have a greater impact on the laying rate, such as water, salt, oil and so on. Among them, the lack of water has a greater impact on the laying rate of laying hens. If the laying hens do not drink enough water, the basic metabolism of the body will be affected, and the laying rate will decrease. Usually, when the laying hens are short of water for more than 36 hours, production will stop.QINLE layer chicken cage in PHILIPPINES can raise more chickens,so the nutritional problems of chickens are particulaly important.
