Abstract:

A study was conducted to evaluate the production performance and adaptability of Namakkal quail in Nagapattinam coastal agroclimatic zone. As a part of Front line demonstration 2018-2019, 400 numbers of day old Japanese quail chicks were purchased from VC & RI, Orathanadu and distributed to the beneficiaries of Nagapattinam district. The average body weight on hatch of female and male chicks were 8.25 g and 6.5 g respectively. The average 4th and 6th week body weight of the male and female quails were 208.33+ 0.24 g, 240+ 0.14 g and 234.2+ 0.19 g, 263.77+ 0.28 g respectively. The average weight of egg was 12-13 g. The adaptabillity and averege survivability of the above variety of japanese quail was 93%. This study concludes that Namakkal quail farming in Nagapattinam district will be the better alternate agricultural allied activity having better bussiness scope.
