study was carried out for six weeks on 135-day-old quail chicks
to study the effect of supplementation of yeast and acidifier on
growth performance. The dietary treatments comprised of T1
– control i.e. corn - soya based diet as control, whereas T2
supplemented with yeast and acidifier respectively. The body
weight gain and feed conversion efficiency was significantly
(P<0.01) better in yeast and acidifier fed groups. Similarly,
dressing percentage was also significantly (P<0.05) better in
these groups. Also, N2
retention was found maximum in acidifier group whereas in yeast
group it is low as compared to control. It is concluded that
yeast and acidifier can be incorporated in diet of Japanese
quail as a growth promoter.
