Abstract:
The present research work was designed to evaluate the productive performance of quails chicks by substituting the four different concentration of <em>Moringa oleifera</em> leaf powder (0%, 1.5%, 3% and 4.5%) by weight basis in feed. A total of 108 day old chicks were procured and after two weeks of brooding they were randomly divided into four experimental groups. Each group was further subdivided into 3 replicates containing 9 chicks in each. Different combinations of feed were offered to them for a period upto 12 weeks. The investigation of above research work showed that birds fed on diets containing <em>Moringa oleifera</em> leaf powder (MOLP) gains significantly higher body weight gain and having more body weight gain than that of birds feeding on control diet (0% MOLP). It could be concluded that inclusion of MOLP at 1.5%, 3% and 4.5% in quails diets improves the growth performance than control diet however, the best result on growth performance was shown by the birds fed on 1.5-3% MOLP.
