I've always fed my broilers free choice on broiler starter/finisher.

Monitor Feed Clean-up Time •Indication of adequacy of feed allocation •Record feed clean-up time daily •Key is to look for change in clean-up time –If change is >45 minutes, bird weight should be measured immediately •Sudden feed clean-up time changes often precede changes in: –bodyweight by days –egg production by days.

Attempts to feed broiler breeders with diluted and high fibre diets ( – Kcal) in order to increase satiety is receiving more attention today on the basis of observed improvements in bird welfare. When birds become more voracious, low density diets are preferred to maximise feed volume, increase feeding time.

Feeding constitutes the highest variable cost in poultry production, accounting for at least 60% of such costs, especially in an intensive rearing system.

Energy intake is an essential factor in broiler production because of its involvement in growth rate, carcass quality as well as its role in the development of certain metabolic diseases.

Dietary energy is supplied in broiler nutrition. Broilers require more energy and protein in their food. The main difference between layer poultry feed and broiler poultry feed is that ‘broiler poultry needs more nutrient ingredients than layer poultry’. So broiler poultry feed must have to be enriched with highly nutrient ingredients.
