Abstract:

One hundred and forty four numbers of 40th week-old coloured broiler breeder hens were randomly distributed into 6 dietary treatments with three replicates with 8 chicks per replicate. The dietary treatments were: T1 (Control group): Basal diet; T2: Basal diet with 0.3 ppm of inorganic Se (SS-0.3); T3: Basal diet with 0.6 ppm inorganic selenium (SS-0.6); T4: Basal diet with 0.3 ppm of organic selenium (SY-0.3); T5: Basal diet with 0.6 ppm of organic selenium (SY-0.6); and T6: Basal diet with 0.3ppm sodium selenite+0.3 ppm selenium yeast (SS-0.3+SY-0.3). The supplementation was continued for 12 weeks. The body weight, hen day egg production (%), hatchability (%) was recorded at 6wk interval. There was no significant difference in body weight, laying performance of broiler breeder hen between the treatments. Hatchability study in 52nd week birds supplemented with both in organic and inorganic selenium groups showed significantly higher percentage control groups. No significant difference found in egg weight and other egg quality parameters. From the above experiment it was concluded that feeding of organic selenium at both the doses to the coloured broiler breeder hens improved the egg hatchability in comparison with inorganic selenium. Therefore it is recommended that 0.3ppm of organic selenium should be supplemented to the broiler breeder hen.
