George EntzHere is another talk from Dr. Schwean-Lardner where they found that increasing dar hours shifts the time of gaining weight to later (after 32 days) in their lives. https://www.wattagnet.com/articles/41944-why-broilers-need-darkness-everyday?v=preview

In the field, I have raised chicks on 4 hour darkness at hatch till day 4 and working up to 6 by day 8, and I have found the same. That the 7 day weight is slightly lower but the "burst" of growth after day 9 more then makes up for it. The concern was that in finishing when feeding mash diets that in higher density barns (3.5 kg/ sq ft) that the chicks wouldn't have enough time and feed intake wou ...

The use of Challenge conditions and coccidiosis challenges in an experiment makes the interpretation of research as it applies to commercial conditions more difficult. I have found that reducing density and feeding a consistently good quality diet will enable a production manager to determine which products work in his operations and the products that give a positive return.

David Wicker Ph. D. Those are very good points and highlight the difficulty of taking results obtained in small scale research (where we can expect a proportion of birds - i.e. the negative control - to show the ill effects of the challenge) and attempting to learn what works in the field (where the loss of productivity would be unacceptable).

Great points! Matrix values of enzymes should be used cautiously as they might not always be accurate. Different factors such as birds’ age, dietary antinutrients, disease, and environmental conditions can affect the efficacy of enzymes in diets. Another concern in using these values is related to enzyme additivity issues. Nutritionists must be careful when reviewing the total matrix applied ...

From experience in freerun brown layers, it is easy to see if enzymes work. Add it on top, and you should see the results on bird weight in a week to 10 days. What the bird's weight tells you, is larger egg size and or production coming, because of increased follicle size and number. But one must have a continuous bird weigher. Accurate bird scales that has temp compensated are paramount in today' ...
