The outcome of this project will provide insight into how to optimise egg shell quality at peak lay through nutritional management from 18 weeks. Hens of lighter and average weight will be trial-fed on diets of either higher or lower nutritional density to 90 weeks. Feed efficiency and egg shell quality will be measured for the duration.
