The present study was carried out for six weeks on 135 day old quail chicks to study the effect of supplementation of probiotic and enzymes on growth performance. The dietary treatments comprised of T1 – control i.e. corn – soya based diet as control, whereas T2 and T3 supplemented with probiotic and multienzyme respectively. The body weight gain and feed conversion efficiency was significantly (P<0.01) better in probiotic and enzyme fed groups. Similarly dressing percentage was also significantly (P<0.01) better in these groups as compared to control. It is concluded that probiotic and enzyme can be successfully incorporated in diet of Japanese quail as a growth promoter.
