Abstract:

Poultry is a domesticated species of birds reared for production of eggs, meat, feather, etc. Kadaknath is an important indigenous breed of poultry inhabitation in vast areas of Western Madhya Pradesh mainly the Jhabua and Dhar districts and adjoining areas of Gujarat and Rajasthan. Kadaknath breed most of the internal organs exhibit intense black colouration which is due to the deposition of melanin pigment in the connective tissue of organs and in the dermis. The nutritive value of maize and sorghum seed depends on the technological processes used, such as milling, oil extraction, starch separation and germination. The present experiment was conducted on 240 day old Kadaknath chicks belonging to same hatch and randomly divided into six treatment groups of 40 chicks each viz., GM0, GM1, GM2, GS0, GS1 and GS2. Control groups (GM0) and (GS0) were given standard ration with 100% normal maize and 100% normal sorghum based diet respectively. The treatment Group GM1 and GM2 was given diet containing standard ration with 50% germinated maize and 75% germinated maize respectively. Group GS1 and GS2 were given diet containing standard ration with 50% germinated sorghum and 75% germinated sorghum respectively. Supplementation of maize at 75% level is more economical than germinated sorghum in the feed. It is more economical and profitable to the farmers as there was no addition of costly feed additives in the ration of Kadaknath birds.
