The Effect of Environmental Temperature on Weight Gain, Feed Intake and Broiler House Revenue

Turan Binici and Sahin Cadirci    

Abstract: The objective of this study was to determine the effect of two temperature regimens on the body weight gain, feed intake and revenue. This information is needed to select most profitable conditions for broiler production. The experiment began when the chicks were 21 days old and fed during the 21 days of experiment. The experiment consisted of male and female birds per temperature, repeated 12 times with 2 broilers per replicate. Room temperatures were set at 21±2 and 30±2°C by controlling two air conditioners (White Westinghouse). Birds were weighed and for each cage 2 male and 2 female birds were placed (50x50x50 cm). The data were analyzed statistically and shows that temperature has significant (p<0.001) effect on body weight gain, feed intake and revenue. Temperature have depressed body weight gain, feed intake and revenue. Revenue loss experienced malexfemale, male and female were 4.23, 2.3 and 6.2%, respectively.
