The methods of limiting feeding

Restricted feeding can reduce the amount of food input and reduce feed consumption. At the same time, the amount of fat deposition in the breeder's belly is reduced, thereby reducing the incidence of prolapse and dystocia after the start of production.

In production, how do you know how to limit feeding? At present, the methods of limiting feeding can be divided into time-limited methods, limited-quality methods, and limited methods. In practice, one method is not used alone. For example, the time-limited method mainly controls the feed intake of the breeder by controlling its feed intake time. This law can be divided into three types of daily limit feed, every other day limit feed and weekly limit feed.


What are the benefits of limiting feeding?

Restricted feeding allows the broiler breeder's bones and internal organs to fully develop early, maintain proper weight, postpone broiler breeder sexual maturity, and synchronize sexual maturity and maturation. After the breeder is 27 weeks old, the egg production rate can exceed 50% and 30 weeks old can enter the peak period of egg production. Therefore, the use of restricted feeding can make the breeder's age at birth relatively neat, and the production can be carried out in a timely manner. The rate of egg production rises quickly, the peak period of egg production lasts for a long time, and the qualified rate of eggs is high.


Why do we have to limit the weight of chickens?

Because the breeding ability of breeder is very strong, they growth fast and weight gain fast. Then if you do not control their weight, the breeder's weight can easily exceed the standard, thus affecting the production. Therefore, when breeder chicken aged in 4 weeks to 24 weeks, always be limited feeding.

Restricted feeding can first ensure that the breeder's body weight meets this breed's standard. If breeders overweight, especially hens overweight, will have significantly reduced egg production and a lower rate of qualified eggs. And overweight often causes leg problems, too.
