Cite article:- Sharma Pramod, Gupta Vishnu (2024). INDUCED MOULTING IN LAYERS – A REVIEW. Agricultural Reviews. 34(2): 137-144. doi: .
Poultry industry is playing the biggest role in the industries of the developing countries with respect to the capital generated by this industry as well as the fulfillment of the nutritional requirements. The improvement in the production potential of the existing layer population is more imperative as compared to the size of the flock. In this aspect induced moulting is a valuable as well as economical practice especially for the developing countries. There are many methods to induce the moulting which are under investigation to prove the competency over the other. So, there was a need to compile these extensive studies regarding the induced moulting with relation to different aspects. The review of the literature is always the basic necessity to make further hypothesis. In addition to the different moulting programmes the supplementation of the molted birds with protein and probiotics will also be a provoking idea in order to improve the production potential of the molted layers.
