Abstract:
Four different treatments were given out to 128 day-old straight run turkey poults: T1-basal diet (control), T2 - 2.5% of basal diet replaced with ALP, T3 - 5% of basal diet replaced with ALP, T4 - 7.5% of basal diet replaced with ALP. The findings of the present investigation showed that the average weekly weight gain of T3 was significantly higher (p<0.01) as compared to rest of the treatment groups and significantly lowest body weight gain was observed in T1 (control). Significantly better feed conversion ratio was found to be in the 5% (T3) Azolla-fed treatment group. Based on the results, it can be said that azolla meal can be substituted up to 5% of the total diet of young turkeys without having any negative effects. Four different treatments were given out to 138-day-old straight-run turkey pouts.
