Abstract:

The present day Indians prefer quail meat due to low cholesterol and fat content than that of other poultry meats. One hundred ninety two (192) 7days old broiler quail chicks of either sex were taken for the study. The chicks were weighed and randomly distributed into four dietary treatments with four replicates in each group having twelve (12) chicks in each replicate. The dietary treatments were: T1 - control diet; T2- diet containing 5% fish silage and T3-diet containing 10% fish silage and T4 - diet containing 15% fish silage. The cost of experimental diet per kg fed to the birds during the period of experiment was estimated to be Rs 29.11 (T1), 28.52(T2), 28.10 (T3) and 27.72(T4). The cost of feed per kg of weight gain was the lowest in T2 (Rs.99.88) while it was highest in case of T3 (Rs 121.62). Therefore, it is concluded that AFS can be included at 5% level in the diet of broiler Japanese quails to economize the feed cost.
