Effect of dietary yeast on the performance and biochemical profile in Japanese quails
Author(s): Dr. Ashok Kumar Devarestti
Abstract: The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of supplementation of Dietary baker’s yeast as a probiotic on body performance and biochemical profile of Japanese quails (Coturnix coturnix japonica). In this experiment a total of 96 day-old unsexed, growing Japanese quails were equally divided into three groups of 32 birds in each group. The experiment was terminated when birds were 6 weeks old. The standard basal diet was fed in first group (G1), 5% and 10% level of baker’s yeast was supplemented in basal diet for second group (G2) and third group (G3) respectively. Feed and water was supplied ad libitum for all the birds. Body performance was determined by measuring feed intake, body weight gain and feed conversion ration. At the end of the experiment blood samples were taken to determine some blood plasma constituents. The results obtained in this study showed that, supplementation of dietary baker’s yeast had positive effect on production performance and blood biochemical profile in Japanese quails.
