A comparison of Leucaena leucocephala and grass meals as sources of yolk pigments in diets for laying hens

A comparison of Leucaena leucocephala and grass meals as sources of yolk pigments in diets for laying hens

Tropical Animal Production 6(2): 167-173

Forty-eight laying hens were used in a 6 X 8 randomised block design of experiment. Leucaena leaf meal and grass meal were added to a low-pigment diet (LP) to supply dihydroxyxanthophyll (DHX) 10 or 20 mg/kg. Leucaena from Malawi was added to supply both 10 mg (L10) and 20 mg DHX/kg (L20), and Leucaena from Bangkok was added to supply 10 mg DHX/kg (B10) and the grass to supply 20 mg DHX/kg.
