Reduction in the size of the egg-laying bird with ability to utilise more fibrous cheaper diets formulated using agricultural by-products. What do you mean by this statement? 

Dear student,   
Please find below the solution to the asked query   

It is one of the desirable trait in poultry that the newer varieties of birds formulated by cross-breeding programmes must be smaller in sizes with the ability to sustain life on cheap, fibrous diets. This fibrous food could be obtained from by-products of agricultural processes like weed removal, threshing etc.
