Abstract:
An experiment of was conducted, utilising 180-day old Japanese quail chicks, which were randomly kept in three different groups i.e. T0 (photoperiod 16L:8D), T1 (photoperiod 24L:0D) and T2 (photoperiod 12L:12D) each having 2 replicate (30 chicks/ replicate) to evaluate the influences of photoperiod on Japanese quail age at sexual maturity and weight at sexual maturity. The data for all measured variables were analyzed using one way ANOVA procedure of SPSS version 20. The results revealed that the group reared in T1 showed significantly early sexual maturity as compared to rest of the groups. However highest value on body weight at sexual maturity was observed in T0 and T1 as compared to T2. So it could be concluded that Japanese quail reared in (photoperiod 16L: 8D) and (photoperiod 24L: 0D) showed best performance.
