Abstract: A total of 416 Saudi Arabian Baladi hens were divided into four experimental groups and subjected to the following treatments: Commercial laying ration (17.48% CP, 2585 ME kcaUkg, 3.6% Ca and 0.343% available P) fed ad libitum as a control (C); Conventional force molting, feed removal for 10 days followed by 18 days full feed of cracked corn (F); 15 days ad libitum intake of the control ration supplemented with 0.35% Al as the sulfate (ALS) or chloride (ALC). Treatments and production periods had highly significant (P< .01) effects upon post-rest egg production (HD), feed intake/bird/day(FIBID), feed consumed per dozen (FIDE) and per Kg eggs (F/KgE). Similar effects were observed for their interaction but only on HD and F/BID. ALC had significantly (P<.05) the lowest and the control the highest HD. F had significantly (P<.05) the highest FIBID while ALS consumed similar amount as ALC but significantly (P<.05) lower than the control. F and ALS had similar FIDE and F/KgE whereas ALC had significantly (P<.05) the highest FIDE and F/KgE compared with the control and other groups. The control had significantly (P<.05) the lowest F/KgE but had similar FIDE as ALS group.
