Just recently, Poultry World hosted a webinar on the benefits of early feeding to promote health and ensure performance of day-old chicks in later life. This webinar is now available to re-watch online via the link below. Don’t miss out on the valuable contributions of our expert speakers.
Recent studies have shown that chicks that have early access to feed and water, either in the hatchery or in the barn, resulted in higher body weights and fewer footpad lesions in later life. Our 3 expert speakers shared their knowledge on how to give chicks the best start in life.
