Nutritional requirements for laying hens from 15 weeks of age to laying period
1. Ensure that there is a reasonable calcium gradient in the diet, so as not to directly use the peak high-calcium diet to cause excessive blood calcium in laying hens, which will increase the burden on the kidneys, cause kidney swelling, and eventually lead to diarrhea;
2. An appropriate (week to two weeks) nutritional transition plan from breeding to start of production is needed to avoid nutritional stress;
3. Sufficient essential amino acids, trace elements, vitamins, etc., lay a good foundation for peak egg production;
4. Provide an appropriate level of calcium to ensure calcium reserves, so as to avoid eggshell problems such as soft-shelled eggs during the peak period of egg production.
