Influence of antimicrobial feed additives on broiler commensal posthatch gut microbiota development and performance

Torok, Valeria; Allison, Gwen; Percy, Nigel J; Ophel-Keller, Kathy; Hughes, Robert J


The effects of avilamycin, zinc bacitracin, and flavophospholipol on broiler gut microbial community colonization and bird performance in the first 17 days posthatch were investigated. Significant differences in gut microbiota associated with gut section, dietary treatment, and age were identified by terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (T-RFLP), although no performance-related differences between dietary treatments were detected. Similar age-related shifts in the gut microbiota...[Show more]
