چکیده:

Zeolite as a feed additive in broiler chickens diets increase performance and feed efficiency and decrease
ammonia levels in the poultry houses. Often the ammonia levels in poultry houses exceed 100 ppm close to
lethal for growthers and birds. High ammonia levels decrease gradable weight gain in broiler chickens
operations and egg production in layers. Adding zeolite in broiler chickens diet lead to decrease primary
mortality, rapid growth of chickens, aflatoxin control in broiler chickens and reduce bedder moisture. Many
farms have eliminated most of their odor and realized greater bird health, welfare and production by feeding
zeolite between 0.5 to 2 % of the total ration. Feed efficiency was markedly higher at all levels of zeolite
substitution in broiler chickens.
