Abstract

The experiment was conducted at the Faculty of Sustainable Agriculture Poultry Housing in Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Sandakan campus, Sabah to study the effects of ground raw candlenut (Aleurites Mollucana (L) Willd) kernel on carcass yield in quails. The objective of the study was to determine the effects of ground raw candlenut kernel at different levels on the carcass yield in quails. The experimental design used for this study was Completely Randomized Design (CRD) by utilizing were 100 quails from the species Cortunix cortunix Japonica or commonly known as the Japanese quails at the stage known as DOQ (day old quail). For the first 3 weeks, the quails were fed with commercial poultry starter ration before they were introduced to the treatments which were {Tl) basal diet, {T2) basal diet+ 2.Sg/kg ground raw candlenut kernel (0.25%), {T3) basal diet+ Sg/kg ground raw candlenut kernel (0.5%) and {T4) basal diet+ 10g/kg ground raw candlenut kernel (1%) which have been isonitrogenously formulated to meet or exceed NRC (1994) until they were culled at the age of 6 weeks or 42 days. Based on the study, it was found that different levels of ground raw candlenut had no significant (p>0.05) on the Animal Fat Pad (AFP) weight, the carcass weight, the breast weight, the thigh weight, the wing weight and the skin weight of the quails. However, there were significant (p<0.05) effects on parameters such as the live weight, the bone weight and the meat weight of the quails. The best performing treatment was Treatment 3 that was able to produce the highest live weight, carcass weight, breast weight, thigh weight, wing weight and meat weight while producing the lightest bone weight among all the treatments used. All the data were analyzed by using Statistical Analysis System (SAS) v 9.4.
