broiler, breeding condition, viability, production, carcass


Two experiments were carried out in practical conditions on the farm for fattening of chickens. In the hall with deep litter, which were carried out experiments, was installations with breeding technology of Big Dutchman with automatic feeding, watering, automatically set to light and temperature regimes. During both experiments were observed recommended microclimate conditions and the length of light and ventilation in the hall. The concentration of broilers per one square meter was 27.22, respectively. 29.34 kg. Their vitality was 94.2 and 95.6%. The average body weight of chickens at the end of the experiment (day 42) were 1986.65 and 2074.29 g, with a statistically proved differences between experiments (P < 0.01). The average carcass weight of broilers in the live weight 1800.0 g were 1384.67 and 1407.0 g, while the difference was not statistically proved (P > 0.05).
