Hens eat to satisfy their energy requirements and for this reason a pro per balance between protein and energy is necessary to achieve optimum use of feed. These concepts, applied to practical feed formulation, have tended to promote high density, high efficiency diets. A study just completed involving protein-energy relationships and least costing techniques indicate that the most efficient feed conversion is not always the most economical method of production.
