Dietary calcium and non-phytin phosphorus interaction on growth, bone mineralization and mineral retention in broiler starter chicks



Dietary calcium and non-phytin phosphorus interaction on growth, bone mineralization and mineral retention in broiler starter chicks



Asian Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences 16(5): 719-725



An experiment was conducted to study the requirement of calcium (Ca) and non-phytin phosphorus (NPP) in commercial broilers during starter phase. Seven hundred and twenty day-old Vencob male broiler chicks were randomly distributed into 144 stainless steel battery brooders, 5 birds in each. Four levels each of Ca (6, 7, 8, and 9 g/kg) and NPP (3, 3.5, 4, and 4.5 g/kg diet) were fed in a factorial design in a corn-soya basal diet.
