Effect of feeding time on the reproductive performance of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica)



Effect of feeding time on the reproductive performance of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica)



Poultry Science 82(7): 1188-1192



Several feeding regimens are applied to improve performance of fertile egg production during times of heat stress. During a period of heat stress (34-36 degrees C), two feeding periods were used to measure the impact of feeding time on reproductive performance of Japanese quails (Coturnix coturnix japonica) between 44 and 60 weeks of age. Each feeding time treatment had 25 individually caged male and female pairs. Quails were fed ad libitum between 06.00 to 14.00 or 14.00 to 22.00 h daily.
