Abstract:
The present study was conducted for 35 days using 180-day old quail chicks randomly distributed in four treatments were as follows: T1 control group (without any litter treatments), T2 groups treated with aluminum sulfate, T3 group treated with sodium bisulfate, and T4 group treated with aluminum chloride. All the treatment groups were divided into three replicates, namely R1, R2, and R3, with 15 birds in each replicate. Litter characteristics i.e. Litter moisture (%) and Litter pH was determined at a weekly interval for all four treatment groups. Results showed significant effect of different litter amendments on moisture percent (P<0.01). The lowest moisture percent was recorded for the T4 group and the highest for the T1 control group. The litter pH values of the experiment showed a highly significant (P<0.01) effect during all five weeks due to incorporating different litter treatments into the bedding material, highest in the T1 group, whereas the T4 group revealed the lowest overall mean pH. It could be concluded that all three litter treatments significantly reduced litter pH and moisture %.
