Abstract:
The present study investigates the effects of Giloy and ascorbic acid supplementation along with different bedding materials (sand, saw dust and wheat straw) on egg production status of Japanese quails. 432 laying Japanese quails (7 day old) were divided into three of different bedding material and each bedding material group further subdivided into four groups on the basis of supplementation (control, Giloy, ascorbic acid and combination of both). Thus birds were randomly and uniformly distributed in total 12 treatment groups comprising of 36 birds in each group and each group further divided into two replicates comprising 18 birds in each replicate. Quails were fed a basal diet and the basal diet supplemented with 5 g/kg giloy supplement of diet, 240 mg of ascorbic acid/kg supplement of diet and a combination of 5 g/kg giloy and 240 mg of ascorbic acid/kg supplement of diet. Highly significant (P<0.01) effect of incorporation of supplements and different bedding material was found on egg weight of Japanese quail. The effect of dietary supplementation on egg shape index was found non-significant (P>0.05) and highly significant (P<0.01) effect of bedding materials was found on the egg shape index. Non-significant effect of interaction between incorporation of dietary supplementation and different bedding materials was reported on egg weight and egg shape index of Japanese quail during experiment.
