A.S. Series 77-27
Fatty liver hemorrhagic syndrome (FLHS) continues to be a major cause of mortality among caged laying chickens. It ranked third (about 10%) following leukosis and cannibalism in those hens submitted to the Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory in 1976. Five more experiments on this subject were completed this past year. One involved a normal feeding regime, while in four experiments the force-feeding technique was used.
