Egyptian feed millers should consider using DDGS to replace as much of the corn and soybean meal required in the diets. At today's DDGS prices, the cost saving should be very attractive.

Ozone is successfully being used for sanitising bird drinking water as well as maintaining biofilm free drinking lines in Australian farms....my company has been providing such systems for many years and the cost is not prohibitive when installed correctly.

Dear AR Baldovino, Ozone gas can be a suitable alternative. There are companies that specialise in manufacturing and installing ozone generating machines for water sterilisation as required by food companies and other industries. It may be pretty expensive but this should ensure that you don't get any unwanted chemical residues in your system.

Dear Khaliphani, I have had a few cases where the litter from the previous flock could not be removed fast enough from the barns before the next batch of chicks arrived and stocked. We observed that such chicks would easily get infected with Infectious Bursal Disease (Gumboro) virus. Beside IBD, other resistant viruses which can persist in the litter are Reovirus and Adenovirus. All these viruses ...

Hi Steven, I feel that the underlying cause of your problem is the insufficient body and skeletal development of your pullets. Under our hot tropical conditions where appetite is always being suppressed, young pullets tend to be underweight with much smaller body frame. So when they come into lay or photo stimulated, the eggs are likely obstructed by the smaller cloaca and vent, resulting in prola ...

Hi Steven, what levels of Metabolizable Energy and Crude Protein are your using for your first layer feed when the problem was first seen? What is the bodyweight of the pullets when you began increasing the light hours at 21 weeks old? Under normal situation if the pullets' internal organ and body frame development are optimum, you shouldn't be experiencing prolapse. I have also noticed that Lohma ...

While Kelp Meal has been used in layer feeds as a way to improve eggshell appearance and colour, the benefits of using Omega-3 enriched algae is questionable as there is no clear cut nutritional requirement of Omega-3 for poultry. I would only use it if I wish to produce Omega-3 enriched eggs for human consumption.

This can happen if the chickens are too nervous or stressed. Some usual causes are: (1) artificial lighting intensity too high, (2) heavy parasite (worms, ectoparasites and cocci) infections, (3) feed distribution too fast or not fairly distributed throughout house or insufficient feeder space, causing flock aggression from competition, and lastly (4) nutritional imbalance. It is better to check a ...

I advise checking the layer feed formulation carefully. Using high levels of starch-rich ingredients especially Broken Rice and vegetable oil can cause fat accumulation in the liver. The risk is increased if the protein, essential amino acid levels (especially methionine) and choline levels are also low. A liver fully infiltrated with fats will have the consistency of jelly and in our hot weather, ...
