Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to evaluate the carcass characteristics of broiler chicken fed with different levels of Sheep manure with or without enzyme supplementation. A total of 210 broiler chicks were procured from commercial hatchery and brooded under uniform managemental condition for one week. On 8th day the chicks were distributed into five treatment groups viz. T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5 containing 42 chicks in each which were subdivided into three replicates of 14 chicks each. The T1 (Control) group fed basal diet and in T2 and T4 the basal diet was replaced by SM at 5% and 10% level without enzyme where as T3 and T5 the basal diet was replaced by SM at 5% and 10% level with multi enzyme supplementation. The per cent blood loss was recorded ranged from 4.22 ± 0.08 in T2 to 4.42 ± 0.09 in T4. The per cent feather loss was recorded to be 5.95 ± 0.12 T1 to 6.16 ± 0.11 in T5. The per cent dressing yield was found to be 71.86 ± 0.38, 72.13 ± 0.29, 71.92 ± 0.22, 71.75 ± 0.28 and 72.07 ± 0.32 respectively, for T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5 groups. Statistically, no significant difference was observed among the different treatment groups for blood loss, feather loss and dressing yields. The per cent of different cut-up parts were found to be differed non-significantly among the different treatment groups. The per cent giblet yield was found to be 6.88 ± 0.14, 6.28 ± 0.12, 6.82 ± 0.14, 6.48 ± 0.17 and 6.58 ± 0.15 respectively, for T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5 groups. Statistical analysis revealed non-significant differences among the various treatment groups.
