Influence of pectinase enzyme supplementation on growth performance of pearl guinea fowl keets (Numida meleagris)
Author(s): Premavalli K
Abstract: A study was conducted to find out the influence of pectinase enzyme supplementation on growth performance of pearl guinea fowl keets. A total of 60 numbers of day old straight run pearl guinea fowl keets were randomly allotted to three different treatment groups with two replicates of ten chicks each. Pectinase enzyme was supplemented @ 0/Kg (T1), 750 u/Kg (T2) and 1500 u/Kg (T3) with corn soya basal ration without including regular feed antibiotics. Numerically higher mean live body weight at eight weeks of age (626.57±17.99, 624.26±25.52)better feed conversion ratio (3.35, 3.25) and higher mean percent livability (92.86, 92.86) was recorded in guinea fowls fed with pectinase enzyme supplemented groups than control (602.64±24.39, 3.39, 92.86%) groups. It is concluded that the dietary incorporation of pectinase enzyme @ 0/Kg, 750 u/Kg and 1500 u/Kg did not have significant (P>0.05) influence on growth performance of guinea fowl keets.
