Abstract:
The present study was undertaken to study the effect of Moringa oleifera on commercial Laying Hens production performance in which soybean meal was gradually substituted at 0, 5, 10 and 15% of Moringa oleifera leaf meal (MOLM). Two hundred and sixteen healthy commercial laying hens of age 25with uniform body weight were divided in a complete randomized design with four treatments and 6 replications. Each treatment consisted of six replication with 9 birds randomly assigned to each treatment. Laying hens were randomly divided into four groups; T1: diets without Moringa oleifera leaf meal, T2: diets with 5% Moringa oleifera leaf meal; T3: diets with Moringa oleifera leaf meal 10% and T4: diets with 15% Moringa oleifera leaf meal, respectively. Present study showed that addition of the Moringa oleifera leaf meal powder significantly increased egg production, feed intake, feed efficiency and egg weight. It was concluded that supplementation of 10% Moringa oleifera leaf meal in diets, increased egg production, feed intake, feed efficiency and egg weight in laying hens.
