WHOLE GRAINS IN BROILER DIETS MAY BOOST FEED EFFICIENCY

Choice feeding allows birds to select according to their
dietary needs. Amy Moss

Post-pellet whole grain feeding results in the greatest
gizzard response, both in terms of gizzard size and
efficiency. However, this method requires an adaptation
period, so chickens do not refuse the whole grains and
flick them out of the feeder.
With pre-pellet whole grains, no adaption period
is needed as birds only see the pellets, however, this
approach generally elicits a poorer response in gizzard
size and efficiency.
Additionally, when pellets are cut during the pelleting
process, it slightly damages the pre-pellet whole grains,
but the benefit is that they can be more easily consumed
by small chicks, which can be an issue with post-pellet
whole grains.
Moss said: "We traditionally feed poultry pellets of
finely ground ingredients. Chickens fed these diets don't
use their gizzards so these organs get very flabby. If you
add more whole grains to chickens' diets, their gizzards
