中文摘要

The objective of the study was to determine the effect of different housing on growth development in red native chickens. Four thousand six hundred and ninety birds randomly allocated into 2 houses (wet pad and conventional housing), males and females in each house were even and kept separately. For every housing and sex treatment, 100 birds were selected, attached with leg bands, weighed weekly as the source for weight gain data. Birds were kept from hatch until 12-weeks old. The results indicated that weight gain of red chickens grew fast in wet pad and forced ventilation cooling house (WPFV) than those in conventional house in the whole period. However during the first 4 weeks the chickens raised in conventional house grew fast than those in WPFV house. The growth rate of chickens dropped dramatically after 9 weeks. Male chickens grew fast than female chickens during the whole 12 weeks period. Males growth rate dropped faster from 11-12 weeks of age when compared with female chickens. The experiment suggested that large red native chickens should go to market about 10-12 weeks of age. Males should go to market a little bit earlier than females.
