Abstract


Abstract

The aim of our paper was to present the results of  in vivo experiment. We carried out an experiment with a final type of hens Shaver Starcross 288 which fed a feed mixture with a share of the rapeseed cakes. The effectiveness of the feed mixture was followed mainly in relation to production indicators. The laying hens were placed individually in enriched battery cages. The trial was conducted in the first period of the laying cycle, laying hens’ age from 22 to 42 weeks. The experimental results confirmed that the rapeseed cakes are suitable feed raw material for laying hens. A proportion of 5% rapeseed cakes in the feed mixture are optimal with respect to maintaining body weight of laying hens and suitable to productive indexes, like are laying intensity and weight of table eggs.
