In 3 experiments chicks received rations differing in energy value per g., protein content and energy: protein ratio, and heat increment and deposition of protein were estimated from respiration trials twice a week. At constant protein concentration the feed efficiency of a ration rose with increasing energy to protein ratio, but at constant energy content feed efficiency rose at first with increasing energy to protein ratio, then reached a peak and thereafter fell.
