Effect of supplemental dietary fat on the reproductive performance of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica)



Effect of supplemental dietary fat on the reproductive performance of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica)



Research Report, Department of Animal Science, McGill University: 32-34



27 and 135 Japanese quails were fed diets containing 0, 3.5 or 7% of blended animal fat supplement. Hens were mated naturally. Supplementation significantly increased feed intake (P<0.05), but significantly reduced feed conversion efficiency (g feed per dozen eggs). Supplementation at 3.5% significantly reduced egg production.
