Abstract:
As per 20th livestock census, the total poultry population in India has increased by 16.81% and the total poultry production recorded was 851.81 million during 2019. Out of total poultry population 37.8% is under backyard production system in Rajasthan. However, the southern Rajasthan has about 16.3% of total poultry of Rajasthan and it also has 41.2% of total poultry of Rajasthan under backyard system. The total poultry population in Rajasthan has registered a phenomenal increase of about 80% over last livestock census and the current poultry population is 14.62 million, however, it is only 1.72% of poultry population of India (BAHS, 2019). The present study was conducted to assess the effect of feeding Amla (Emblica officinalis) powder on performance and carcass characteristics of broiler chicks. One hundred sixty broiler chicks (day old chicks) were randomly allotted to 4 dietary treatments with 4 replicates of 10 chicks each. The treatment included the (T1) control, (T2) control group supplemented with Amla powder @ 0.5%, (T3) control group supplemented with Amla powder @ 1.0%, (T4) control group supplemented with Amla powder @ 1.5%. The effect of supplementation was observed on the body weight, body weight gain, feed intake, FCR, nutrient utilization, nutrient balance, carcass traits viz., live weight, slaughter weight, eviscerated weight, dressing weight, weight of heart, liver, gizzard, and economics in broiler chicks.
