Effects of Feed Restriction on Metabolic Disorders in Broiler Chickens: A Review

Mahmood Sahraei    

Abstract: Continuous genetic selection and improvement in nutrition have led to a very fast growth rate in modern strains of broiler chickens. Metabolic disorders such as ascits, sudden death syndrome and leg problems are related to a rapid early growth rate in poultry, especially in broilers and their incidence can be decreased by slowing early growth. The use of management tools to reduce metabolic disorders that rely primarily on decreasing feed consumption. The feed restriction programs is on of the main techniques in growth curve manipulation for increasing production efficiency in broiler chicken in alleviate the incidence of some metabolic disorders and can be used to reduction the unfavorable effects of fast growth rate in broiler chicken production industry and could be profitable in broiler chickens production efficiency. This study implicated on new findings in about different feed restriction programs effects on these problems in broiler chickens.
