Abstract:
Poultry sector in India is mostly organized and holds a very important place in the country’s economy. Though the backyard poultry (BYP) is not well organized, it still plays a major role in rural household, income generation, women empowerment and food security. Syzygium cumini (Family: Myrtaceae) is also known as Syzygium jambolanum and Eugenia cumini. Other common names include Jambul, Black Plum, Java Plum, Indian Blackberry, Jamblang, Jamun etc. An experiment was conducted on Giriraja birds to evaluate the effects of jamun seeds as an unconventional feed on the growth parameters. One hundred and fifty birds were divided into 3 treatments having 5 replicates in each treatment. All replicates contained 10 birds each. The treatment 1 was fed with control diet and inclusion of Jamun seeds is at a rate of 2% and 4% in treatment 2 (T2) and treatment 3 (T3). Eight weeks data was analysed using suitable statistical software. Blood chemistry showed non significant differences among different treatments. It was suggested to include 4 per cent Jamun seeds in Giriraja birds.
