The present 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 and T3 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.
