At the time of commencement of this project, very little research had been conducted into feeding layer hens and results were not consistent among studies of the benefits of adding commercial feed enzyme preparations to the diets of laying hens. This report was conducted to evaluate these benefits and provide Australian egg producers with scientific data to evaluate the processes themselves and carry out an internal cost-benefit analysis.
