Evaluating the Performance of Various Feeding Systems for Hens

  • Rivera Espinosa Ramón


Chickens are omnivores. In the wild, they often scratch at the soil to search for seeds, insects and even animals as large as lizards, small snakes, or young mice. The average chicken may live for five to ten years, depending on the breed. The cages usually have a sloping wire mesh floor and are kept in rows stacked in several tiers. This research aims to evaluate the performance of various feeding systems used for hens.
