Nutrient requirements of egg laying chickens is outlined below. Feed consumption. There are a number of factors that influence voluntary feed intake (discussed in the section on feed intake). Table 1 provides data on typical feed consumption for modern brown-egg laying hens in relation to target body weight.

Layer poultry farming means raising egg laying poultry birds for the purpose of commercial egg production.
