Abstract:
The present study was planned to assess the “Effect of feeding Azolla (Azolla pinnata) leaf powder on carcass and economic traits of turkey poults (Meleagris gallopavo)”. A total of 128 day-old age turkey poults were randomly divided into four treatment groups with four replicates and 8 poults each. Control group (T1) was fed on basal diet without azolla supplementation and three experimental diets were prepared by replacing basal diet with azolla meal at 2.5% (T2), 5% (T3) and 7.5% (T4) levels. The dietary treatments were arranged in complete randomized design and analyzed for the carcass traits and economics of rearing turkey poults. The results attributed to improved live weight, eviscerated weight, dressed weight and B: C ratio. Based on the findings it can be concluded that Azolla leaf powder can be safely administered as unconventional feed ingredient in turkey feed up to 5 percent level without any adverse effect.
