Abstract:

The present investigation entitled Performance of feeding Azolla (Azolla pinnata) meal on body weight gain and dressing percentage of Vanraja poultry birds was carried out to assess the effect of feeding Azolla meal on body weight and dressing percentage of Vanraja poultry bird’s production. One hundred and fifty chicks of day old straight run commercial Vanraja birds were procured Matoshri Distributors, Amravati Hatchery. They were randomly and equally distributed into five treatment groups T1, T2, T3, T4, and T5 with 30 numbers of chicks in each group. Azolla meal was added in experimental ration at different levels. The dietary treatments consisted of one basal control (T1) and supplemented with 3, 6, 9, and 12 per cent Azolla meal to the birds in T2, T3, T4, and T5 treatment, respectively. The corresponding average live body weights at the end of seven weeks of age were 991.30, 1036.04, 1128.59, 1079.22 and1042.40 g in T1 to T5 treatment groups, respectively. The average weekly cumulative body weight gain at seventh week of age were recorded as in gram 958.1, 1003.39, 1095.14, 1047.28 and 1009.45 for T1, T2, T3, T4, and T5 treatments groups, respectively. The average dressing percentage among the different treatment group varied between 69.07 to 64.11 per cent.
