Protein and energy requirements by guineafowl keets.

Abstract

From 1 to 56 days old, 64 guineafowls were given, in a factorial design, diets containing 22 or 19% crude protein and metabolizable energy (ME) 2900 or 2700 kcal/kg. Optimum growth was achieved with diets containing 22% protein and ME 2900 kcal/kg from 0 to 4 weeks old and with 19% crude protein and ME 2700 kcal/kg from 4 to 8 weeks old.
