Importance of fiber in modulating feed intake in broiler breeders – Part 3: Water holding capacity

Diets with fiber that has high water holding capacity, but limited fermentation in the hindgut may help to alleviate hunger and behavioural problems in feed-restricted broiler breeders.

DAVID CADOGAN and MINGAN CHOCT* describe dietary fiber within the feed context, from chemical, physical and functional points of view and speculate on how certain NSP entities can be used to manage intake in broiler breeders without affecting egg production and hatchability.
