Example text

Hoyle and Garlich (1987) found no change in growth or development of Leghorn pullets in response to elevated levels of dietary energy or protein. As suggested above, energy intake is probably the most critical component for this age of bird, and energy intake can perhaps be manipulated best through stimulation of feed intake rather than by simply increasing the energy level of the feed.

Synthetic pigments, such as canthaxanthin and β-apo-8-carotenoic acid (usually as an ethyl ester), can be used to control pigmentation more precisely to yield varying degrees of yellow-orange-red coloration. In natural products, xanthophylls are unstable, and effective levels may decline as a result of oxidation during prolonged storage. This decline can be reduced by the inclusion of antioxidants in the feed. A number of factors can adversely affect absorption of xanthophylls and thus lead to reduced pigmentation.
