Abstract

The performance of birds reared under recommended management (T1 and T2 controls)
was compared with those reared under various stress conditions. The data on various
parameters were analyzed in completely randomized design (CRD). Stress of overcrowding
and poor litter conditions affected body weight gains during latter weeks of age from 4th
week. Feed intake was significantly affected by overcrowding from 4th week onwards, by
high light intensity from 2nd week onwards and poor litter condition from 4th week onwards
as compared to control birds. Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) under stress of poor feeding
was significantly inferior from 2nd week onwards. FCR was not affected significantly either
by high light intensity or by poor litter conditions.
