Abstract

This study aimed to assess the mastery level of poultry farming for broiler reproducers, through the evaluation of the sanitary and zootechnical performances obtained at the level of Commercial Poultry Farms in Tiaret region (the west of Algeria). The results obtained showed that the zootechnical parameters didn’t follow the entirely international standards. Hygrometry and temperature were not controlled. The average mortality rate of males was higher (42.92%) than that of females (8.84%), (P<0.05). Concerning production, the spawning performance was generally within the norms. The onset of laying was around the 24th week and the peak was late; it happened around the 30th week in the farm. The temperature of egg storage (15-18°C) was timidly respected as well as the duration of storage (2 weeks). According to this study devoted to the monitoring of breeding hens, the results showed a variable level of compliance with standards as well as production.
