Veterinary expert Dr Fenny ledieu from France threw light on the importance of early nutrition in a technical seminar organised by the Karnataka Poultry Farmers and Breeders Association (KPFBA).
Dr Fenny lediue opined that hatching is a critical period when the day-old chick takes to lung breathing and starts moving to a comfortable zone and also towards water and feed. For this process, hatcheries should provide proper ventilation, nutritious feed and clean water. With these, the gastrointestinal tract (an immunity-boosting organ) becomes stronger so that early chick mortality may be reduced, allowing chicks to withstand adverse environmental conditions and achieve enhanced healthy growth.
