Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of dietary supplementation of different levels of Garlic powder (GP) and Onion powder (OP) on production performance and egg quality parameters in laying hens for a period of 16 weeks. A total of 126 white leghorn laying hens at 22 weeks of age were randomly selected and distributed into seven experimental groups having three replicates of six birds each. T1 served as a control, while in treatment groups T2, T3, T4 diet was supplemented with GP at levels of 10g, 20g and 30g /kg feed, respectively, and in T5, T6, and T7 OP was supplemented 10g, 20g and 30g/kg feed, respectively. Results revealed that the body weight changes and the egg quality parameters viz. egg weight, shell thickness and egg shape index were not affected by the garlic and onion powder supplementation.
