FASSANI, EJ et al. Utilization of different levels of sodium supplementation for commercial laying hens on second cycle of production. Rev. Bras. Cienc. Avic. [online]. 2002, vol.4, n.3, pp.235-242. ISSN 1516-635X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-635X2002000300008.

One experiment was conducted aiming to study the sodium supplementation for commercial laying hens on second cycle of production. A total of 360 Lohmann - LSL layers were randomly assigned to 30 conventional cages during 3 periods of 21 days, where 6 cages were placed on each of the 5 dietary treatments (sodium supplemental levels of 0.05, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20 and 0.25%) with 12 layers per cage. A completely randomized design was used in a split-plot schedule. The dietary treatments represented the parcels and the periods represented the split plot. The corn-soybean meal diets were isonutrient and were provided for "ad libitum" consumption. The supplemental sodium was added to the diets in the form of NaCl, with 39.7% of sodium. Performance, eggshell quality and excreta moisture traits were evaluated at the end of each 21 day period, whereas live weight and plasma sodium and potassium were measured at the end of the experiment. Sodium levels influenced the layers performance, which was characterized by reduction on feed consumption, live weight and egg production on the lower sodium levels and by the increase on excreta moisture on the higher sodium level. It follows that in order to achieve the best performance of the laying hens on the second cycle of production, the dietary sodium supplementation must be of 0.185% or 0.219% of total sodium.
