Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to study the effect of replacement of maize with graded levels of mango-seed kernel powder on growth performance in Giriraja birds during 1 to 8 weeks of age. A total of 150 one day old Giriraja chicks were distributed into five treatment groups with three replicates in each group and ten chicks in each replicate. Basal diet (T1) prepared following ICAR (2013) and the experimental diets were prepared by replacing maize with mango-seed kernel powder at 2.5 per cent in T2, 5 per cent in T3, 7.5 per cent in T4 and 10 per cent in T5, respectively. The results revealed that non significant (P>0.05) difference in body weight, feed intake, feed efficiency and survivability among control and treatment groups. Based on the above results it was concluded that maize can be replaced with mango-seed kernel powder up to 10 per cent in a diet without any adverse effects on growth performance in Giriraja birds.
