Comparison of purified and practical diets for reproductive performance in Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica)



Comparison of purified and practical diets for reproductive performance in Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica)



Dissertation Abstracts International, B 34(8): 3575



Studies were conducted to investigate why a purified diet, formulated to be adequate in all known nutrients, does not support reproductive performance in Japanese quail as well as practical diets. Quail fed purified diets had delayed sexual maturity, reduced egg fertility, and reduced hatchability of fertile eggs. There was no difference in ovary and oviduct weights.
