Paddy as a replacer for maize in the diet of broiler chicks

, : Paddy as a replacer for maize in the diet of broiler chicks. Indian Journal of Poultry Science 31(3): 163-167

To study the effect of replacement of maize with paddy (Jiri) on the performance of broilers, maize was replaced quantitatively with paddy at 0 (T-1), 25 (T-2, 50 (T-3), 75 (T-4) and 100 (T-5) per cent levels. Day old, broiler chicks (400) were reared up to 8 weeks of age. The body weights in T-3 were significantly higher (P lt 0.05) than in T-1 (control). Feed consumption increased with the level of replacement up to 50 per cent. The feed consumption ratio's were found comparable in T-1, T-2, T groups. The proximate composition of meat (moisture, protein, ether extract and ash) and carcass traits (dressed weight, eviscerated weight and bone yield) were comparable in all the treatments, at 8 weeks of age. The cost per kg live and eviscerated weights were lower in T-3 compared to in T-1, T-2, T-4 and T-5. It was concluded that replacement of 50 per cent maize of the basal broiler diet with paddy is suitable without affecting the growth performance of birds.
