Evaluation of added levels of vitamin A on egg production and quality traits in Coturnix coturnix japonica



Evaluation of added levels of vitamin A on egg production and quality traits in Coturnix coturnix japonica



Indian Journal of Poultry Science 24(1): 1-7



Age at sexual maturity (ASM), egg production, egg weight and quality was studied in 400 female egg and meat line Japanese quail from 6 to 50 weeks old. Diets were based on maize/groundnut oilmeal supplemented with retinol 2000, 4000, 6000 and 8000 IU/kg. Quails given supplementary retinol 8000 IU/kg were used as controls.
