Abstract:

This experiment was conducted to investigate the dietary effects of turmeric powder on production performances like feed intake, body weight, egg weight and egg production. A total of thirty, 32-wk-old, Jabalpur colour layers were divided into five groups six layers in each, and fed each one of five diets containing 0% turmeric powder (control), 1.5, 3.0, 4.5 and 6.0 g of turmeric powder/kg feed for treatment groups T1-T4, respectively, for 8 wks. No differences in feed intakes, egg weight and eggshell qualities were observed among the treatments, but production in the groups fed with diets containing turmeric powder was significantly higher than that in control (P < 0.05), the maximum increase (53.60%) in egg production was observed in groups T2 and T3 on day 56 of experiment. Significant body weight gain of 10.44% was observed in treatment group T3 fed diet containing turmeric powder supplementation 4.5g/kg feed. The cholesterol levels of egg yolk were significantly influenced by dietary turmeric supplementation. It was concluded that dietary turmeric supplementation was effective in improving laying performance and internal egg qualities. Turmeric powder can be also used as a feed additive for the production of value-enhanced eggs production with increased body weight hence reducing cost of feed for production per egg.
