Abstract :

The aim of this research was to evaluate the effects of prebiotics and organic minerals usage upon
both the productive performance and the eggs internal and external quality of quail. 300 Japanese laying
quails (Coturnix coturnix japonica) was used, from 13 to 28 weeks of age, distributed in a completely
randomized design, with five treatments and six replicates and 10 quails per experimental unit. Treatments
consisted in T1 - Control (neither Bio-Mos nor Bioplex Repro), T2 (0.5 kg/ton Bio-Mos), T3 (1.0 kg/ton Bio-
Mos), T4 (0.5 kg/ton Bio-Mos + 1.0 kg/ton Bioplex Repro and T5 (1.0 kg/ton Bio-Mos + 1.0 kg/ton Bioplex
Repro). It was not verified effect of the treatments on the weight of eggs, feed conversion by egg dozen and
feed conversion by egg mass. Notwithstanding, feed intake, egg production and mass were influenced,
being the best production and egg mass (79.8% and 10.2 g/bird/day, respectively) observed under a diet
containing 0.05% of Bio-Mos (prebiotic) to Japanese laying quails.
