THE PRODUCTIVE EFFECT OF AN ACIDIFYING OVER THE PRODUCTIVE PERFORMANCES AT BROILER CHICKEN
D. Simeanu, I.M. Pop, Cristina Radu-Rusu, Cristina Simeanu
To determine the productive effect of a mixture of acids over the broiler chicken, two experimental batches were formed (LE1 and LE2), of 50 chicken each, together with a control lot (LM), containing 50 chicken. The chicken in the experimental batches received 2%, respectively 2.5% of experimental factor in the drinking water, in the 1-21 days of life period, and 1%, respectively 1.25% in the 22-35 days of life period. The use of this acidifying at the broiler chicken had profitable results, especially in the first week of life, determining production increases of 3.2-4.08% in the experimental batches over the control one. The specific food consumption was fairly influenced, the differences being insignificant. The state of health was corresponding, the loses in the overall number being registered within normal limits for this category of poultry.
