Cage Management for Raising Replacement Pullets

  • Donald D. Bell

Abstract

This chapter discusses procedures necessary for brooding and growing egg-type pullets in cages. This system of management is not new, although there have been numerous improvements through the years. As early as the 1930’s, young chickens were kept in batteries, cages, and wire-floored pens on commercial farms. Today, practically all new egg-type pullet growing facilities built in the United States are of the cage type.
