Rearing diets relatively high in fiber content have been shown to improve subsequent performance of laying hens. Whether this was primarily due to the lower energy content of a 12% protein mostly oats diet or the presence of higher fiber could not be clearly established. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of 17% wheat bran in an isocaloric and isonitrogenous diet as compared to a corn-soy control diet.
