Samenvatting

In this study, the effect of diluted NSP-high diets under feather pecking prone conditions, on the development of feather damage and performance of rearing and laying hens was investigated. Compared to hens fed undiluted diets, feather damage at the end of the laying period was reduced by 20% by feeding both diluted rearing and laying diets.
