Total dietary protein and amino acids such as cystine, methionine, arginine, isoleucine, leucine, valine, lysine, serine, threonine, histidine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan are associated to feather formation.

University Books Publishers; World Poult Sci J ; July 18, ; accepted: Review of the nutrition of Japanese Quail. Nutrient requirements of poultry. Conflicts of interest The authors declare they have no conflicts of interest with regard to the work presented in this report.

Similarly, Pinto et al. How to cite this article. Mortality was daily recorded to colomhia bird viability in the growing and laying phases. The stocking density per experimental unit was Quails fed greater ratios presented better development and weight gain, resulting in greater carcass weight and carcass protein deposition, which was also followed by greater fat deposition.

This was also achieved by hanging oclombia on the laterals of the shed. The use of synthetic amino acids is an interesting alternative to minimize those problems Silva and Costa, O fornecimento nutricional de metionina durante a fase de crescimento pode influenciar citurnicultura como peso corporal para maturidade sexual e tamanho do ovo.

The experimental units were 50 x 34 cm galvanized wire cages in a ladder arrangement, equipped with gutter feeders in the front section and corresponding nipple drinkers. For the calculation of body fat and protein deposits, the value found in the sample was compared with the average weight of the live animal in each experimental unit, according to Pinto et al.


The cages were set inside a shed. Rev Bras de Zoot ; Most research has focused on the nutritional requirements of quails during the laying phase and there is little information about requirements during the growing phase. All the intact eggs produced per replicate in the last three days of each week were weighed and total weight was divided by the number of eggs weighed.

Since methionine is an important sulfur amino acid in the translation of messenger RNA, being the first amino acid incorporated in the N-terminal position of all proteins, methionine requirement for maintenance and synthesis of feather proteins is as important as the need for body protein synthesis.

When quails reached 40 days they had their beaks trimmed before moving them to egg laying cages. A linear increase occurred in the laying phase for feed intake and weight gain of the birds.

Quail farming is very important for providing jobs and producing high quality protein at a low cost. Poult Sci ; This limit was not exceeded in the experimental units after birds presented complete feathering, thus preventing them from any potential negative environmental influence on performance. Leeson S, Summers JD. Introduction Quail farming is very important for providing jobs and producing high quality protein at a low cost.

Discussion Because temperature and humidity in the experimental units did not have extreme variations and because there were no other factors that could make experimental units heterogeneous, it can be inferred that the results found were due to the different amino acid ratios.

Quails were guided to the water right after being housed. Laying phase from 41 to days of age Birds were moved to laying cages at 41 days of age keeping the same birds from each experimental unit together to evaluate growth and development during the laying phase. The average weight of eggs was multiplied by the total number of eggs produced in the period. Services on Demand Article.


Light supply was controlled with a timer, allowing the lights to be turned on and off at night and early morning, in accordance with common procedures in commercial poultry farms. National Academy Press; The units had 24 hours a day of artificial light with the same light bulbs used for warmth until birds were 15 days old.

Quails are characterized by early sexual maturity 40 daysdemanding feeding programs that maximize growth by combining body development with sexual maturity, thus allowing uniformity of breeding stock and productivity Pinto et al. The best ratio for uniformity of quails was 0. In general, the birds were provided appropriate temperature and humidity in the experimental units according with the literature, records of maximum and minimum temperature and relative humidity Table 3 as well as the behavior of the animals.

Methionine, the first limiting amino acid for quails Mandal et al. The ideal protein concept implies feeding the best ratios between lysine and other amino acids, thus reducing the crude protein content of the diet. On reaching 40 days, two birds that were within the average weight of each experimental unit were slaughtered.

Feed intake was weekly measured and the average intake of died birds was subtracted to calculate the real consumption per experimental unit. Temperature was recorded at 4: Heder J D’Avila Lima. Carrera 75 Of. Br Poult Sci ;
