Abstract

The effect of using conventional feed restriction (70% of ad libitum consumption) and different dietary levels of aluminium (0.15% and 0.30%) as aluminium sulfate and zinc (0.15% and 0.30%) as zinc oxide were compared to determine the influence of forced moulting on the productive performance of Japanese quail laying hens. A basal layer diet was fed alone or supplemented with aluminium sulfate and zinc oxide for 14 days to quail laying hens. A cessation of egg production was effectively produced by the feed restriction and dietary levels of Al and Zn on 5<sup>th</sup> day of induction of moulting. During two weeks of moulting period percentage body weight loss was obtained in conventionally feed restriction (22.89%), 0.15% Al (26.30%), 0.30% Al (24.84%), 0.15% Zn (27.49%) and 0.30% Zn (30.46%) respectively.
