About the Book
Your laying hens should not be treated as laying machines. Proper care that allows you to obtain the genetic potential of the bird requires knowledge of the bird as well as the ability to use this knowledge in practice.
The Philippines Layer Management Guide is a practical guide on how to succeed in layer production in the Philippines right from day 1 to the last day when you cull your bird and bring in new flock.
We will show which actions to take at every stage right from the chick placement to brooding, feeding, vaccination, transfer to the laying house, and management factors when the birds are laying which will allow you to get the optimal egg production.
The Philippines Layer Management Guide is suited for various kinds of egg production system in the Philippines including caged based egg production and an alternative poultry farming system such as barn-based production.
