|Title:||Effects of early nutrition and carbohydrate supplementation on water drinking pattern of broiler chickens||Contributor(s):||Ao, Zhigang (author); Choct, Mingan (author)||Publication Date:||2003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4073||Abstract:||Early access to nutrients post-hatch has a major impact on the immediate and long-term development of broiler chickens (Uni 1998). However, in many cases chicks are held for 24-48 h before placement, without access to feed and water. Delayed access to feed and water post-hatch dehydrates the chicks, resulting in depressed immune response and reduced overall performance. Conversely, immediate access to nutrients upon hatch improves the body weight, breast muscle yield, and the uniformity of chicks (Sklan et al. 2000).||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Details:||Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition in Australia, Armidale, Australia, 13th-16th July, 2003||Source of Publication:||Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition in Australia, v.14, p. 9A-9A||Publisher:||University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||ISSN:||0819-4823||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||830309 Poultry||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/33151111?selectedversion=NBD41064497||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 178
