Abstract:

The present study was carried out to assess the production performance on supplementation of turmeric, ginger and their combination in the diets of Gramapriya chicks (240 birds) for a period of 8 weeks. Six experimental diets were formulated with control diet (T1) containing neither turmeric or ginger, T2 and T3 were fed diets containing 0.50 and 0.75% turmeric respectively, T4 and T5 fed diet containing 0.50 and 0.75% ginger respectively, T6 fed diet containing a combination of 0.50% ginger and 0.50% turmeric with commercial feed. The body weight gain was significantly (P<0.05) higher in T2 and T6. Feed intake was significantly (P<0.05) higher T1 and T2. Feed conversion ratio was significantly (P<0.05) better in T2, T3 and T6 compared to other groups. Slaughter studies showed no significant difference between the treatments. The cost of production and return of birds was highly economical in treatment T2 as compared to other treatment groups. Supplementation of turmeric improves the growth performance of Gramapriya chicks when added at the rate of 0.50% in Gramapriya chicks.
