Selection environment influences on feed and water intake of japanese quail following long term selection for 4 week body weight



Selection environment influences on feed and water intake of japanese quail following long term selection for 4 week body weight



Poultry Science 60(12): 2571-2580



Four trials were conducted to investigate feed and water intake of 3 Japanese quail lines reared under different nutritional environments. The P-line quail were established by long-term selection for high 4-wk body weight on a 28% protein diet, T-line quail were similarly established on a 20% protein diet containing 0.2% thiouracil (TU) and C-line quail were from a randomly mated control population maintained under a separate environment from the P and T lines. Through 6 days of age, feed intake of T-line quail under the 28% protein environment was significantly higher than feed intake of P-line quail. This difference did not exist from 6 to 14 days of age. Feed intake of T-line quail under 20% protein environments was always numerically higher than feed intake of P-line quail. Water intake of T-line quail was higher than water intake of P-line quail under all environments. The P-line quail had higher feed efficiencies regardless of environment. The ability of quail selected under a 20% protein + 0.2% TU environment to perform well when placed under a 28% protein environment was primarily due to increases in feed and water intake rather than changes in feed efficiency. The poor performance of quail selected under a 28% protein environment when placed under a 20% protein + 0.2% TU environment was due to their inability to maintain adequate feed intake.
