Abstract: Various qualitative and quantitative feed restriction methods have been applied to force molt chickens in order to improve post-molt egg laying. We report here the effective use of jojoba meal for inducing molting, based on feed restriction, Broiler breeder chickens were forced molted by 12% jojoba meal supplementation in the feed resulting in higher egg production than before molting. This percentage of jojoba meal restricted feed intake to a level similar to that of chickens molted by a well-established qualitative force-molting methods, ADAS (Agricultural Development and Advisory Service), a quantitative feed restricted of wheat only combined with a reduced photoperiod.
