The effect of feeding various levels of dietary glycine in a pre-experimental diet to one-day old chicks on their subsequent glycine plus serine requirement



The effect of feeding various levels of dietary glycine in a pre-experimental diet to one-day old chicks on their subsequent glycine plus serine requirement



Poultry Science 55(5): 1672-1677



Two experiments were to find the effect of feeding chicks 1-9 days of age with various levels of glycine in maize-casein and maize-soya bean-maize glutan meal diets on the subsequent glycine and serine requirements during the 10-21 day feeding period. Chicks in Experiment 1 on maize-casein basal diets with 1.3% additional glycine (2.15% total glycine + serine) gained significantly more weight during the initial 9-day period than chicks on basal diets with 0.3% and 0.9% supplemental glycine.
