Abstract:

Poultry farming is the practice of raising poultry, chicken, turkeys, ducks etc. as an important subcategory of animal husbandry for the production of eggs, meat, feather, etc. Kadaknath is an important Indian poultry breed which has black meat, slow growth rate, smaller body size as well as late sexual maturity. For the increment in the growth of these birds certain feed additives are added to the ration or germination may also increased the nutritive value of maize and other cereals which are main component of the poultry ration. The present experiment was conducted on 128 day old Kadaknath chicks belonging to same hatch and randomly divided into four treatment groups of 32 chicks each viz., T0, T1, T2, and T3. Control group T0 was given standard ration with 100% normal maize based diet. The treatment Groups T1, T2, and T3 were given diets containing standard ration with 50%, 75% and 100% germinated maize, respectively. The significant increase in serum calcium and phosphorus along with significant decrease in alkaline phosphatase and acid phosphatase revealed that the use of germinated maize increase of availability of calcium and phosphorus for better production. A significant decrease in serum cholesterol and significant increase in total protein was also observed in all treated diets as compared to control.
