Growth performance, bone mineralization, and nutrient retention responses of chicks to dietary crude protein and non-phytate phosphorus concentrations



Growth performance, bone mineralization, and nutrient retention responses of chicks to dietary crude protein and non-phytate phosphorus concentrations



International Journal of Poultry Science 3(9): 563-569



The objective of this study was to investigate the possible interactions between dietary crude protein (CP) and phosphorus (P) in broiler chicks (n=288). Two CP levels including an adequate NRC-recommended 230 g/kg or an amino acid supplemented reduced CP, 180 g/kg, and 4 levels, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, or 5.5 g, of non-phytate P (NPP)/kg in a 2x4 factorial arrangement were fed to 6 replicate cages of 6 chicks per cage from 10 to 22 days of age.
