Influence of dietary natural and synthetic pigments on growth performances, skin pigmentation and color difference in broiler chicks



Influence of dietary natural and synthetic pigments on growth performances, skin pigmentation and color difference in broiler chicks



Korean Journal of Poultry Science 30(1): 35-40



This experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of natural and synthetic commercial pigments on the growth performances, skin pigmentation and colour difference of broiler chicks. The experimental diets were formulated to be isocaloric and isonitrogenous for the experimental period, and the xanthophyll concentration in the diet was 8.45 g/tonne. The experiment was conducted for 6 weeks with 450 broiler chicks.
