Abstract:

The present research work was conducted to study the performance of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica). A total number of 300 birds were reared for a period of thirty five days with dietary treatments; T0 - control diet as per ICAR (2013), T1 - T0+ 0.25% Acetic acid, T2 - T0+ 0.25% Butyric acid, T3 - T0+ 0.25% Propionic acid and T4 - T0 + 0.25% Acetic acid +0.25% Butyric acid+0.25% Propionic acid. Each treatment consist of sixty birds with four replicates containing fifteen birds per replicate. Two birds from each replicate of average body weight were selected and slaughtered and blood samples at the end of 35 days were collected for estimation of blood biochemical parameters and for gut health measurement. Blood biochemical parameters viz., total protein, albumin, globulin and cholesterol were found to be significant and triglyceride found non-significant. However there was decreased level of cholesterol in all treatment groups than control. In case of Gut health, ileal pH, intestinal weight, gut thickness, E. Coli and Salmonella count found to be significant.
