Abstract:
The present experimental trial was conducted to see the influence of supplementing azolla on the birds body weight gain reared under backyard poultry farming. Thirty six RIR birds were grouped in to three groups (T1, T2 and T3) each group contains twelve birds. The RIR birds in T1 group reared under scavenging practice only, T2 group birds were allowed to scavenge along with supplementation of fifty percent of basal feed and T3 group birds were practice scavenging plus provision of fifty percent basal feed plus supplementation along with supplementation of azolla 90 gram per bird per day. The T3 group bird's shows significant higher body weight at the age of 20 week in comparison to birds reared under T1 and T2. Hence supplementation of azolla along with basal feed in backyard system of rearing RIR birds shows better weight gain.
