چکیده مقاله:

A study was conducted to investigate the effects of different betaine (BET) (0.0, 0.5 or 1.0 g/kg) and folic acid (FA) (0.0, 4.0 or 8.0 mg/kg) levels on performance, egg FA concentration and egg production of laying quails using 288 forty-two day-old Japanese quail in a 3 × 3 factorial arrangement of treatment based on randomized complete design. The results showed that none of the performance traits, except feed intake, was affected by dietary treatments. No effect of FA and BET supplementation was observed for egg specific gravity but egg shape index was affected throughout the experiment. No significant differences were observed for egg white, pH, weight and ratio, but Haugh unit (HU) was affected significantly by FA supplementation (P

Effect of dietary folic acid supplementation on egg folate content and the performance and folate status of two strains of laying hens.

Enrichment of eggs with folate is possible when dietary folic acid levels are increased. However, development of optimal strategies for the production of folate-enriched eggs requires knowledge as to differences due to strain of bird and a greater understanding of the factors limiting egg folate deposition. To this end, a study was designed to determine the response of two leghorn strains that ...
