Abstract :
Poultry can only regulate their body temperature within a narrow range of environmenta
l
te
mperatures
(between 16-26°C). In the tropics, environmental temperatures are usually above this zon
e
during
most pa
rt of the year. High ambient temperatures adversely affect the performance of poultry wit
h
meat-
type
birds being more susceptible than egg-type birds. The poor performance of poultry under hig
h
ambi
ent
temperatures is mainly as a result of decreased feed intake which consequently reduces growt
h
and
meat quality, egg production and egg quality and efficiency
of feed utilization. Several feeding practices
have been used
to alleviate the adverse effects of high temperatures on poultry performance. Although most
studies
on nutritional management of heat stress have been carried out in broilers there are also few reports
on
nutritio
nal management in laying hens under heat stress condition. Feed form (particle size
,
moistu
re
content), nutrient manipulation (especially energy and protein), electrolyte and vitami
n
supplement
ation,
feeding time/feed restriction, choice feeding and drinking water management have al
l
proven
to be
beneficial to heat-stressed poultry. The present paper reviews some common feedin
g
manage
ment
practices used to alleviate the effect of high ambient temperatures on poultry performance a
s
well as their limitations.
