An experiment was conducted to assess the feeding value of broken rice for laying Japanese quails. Quail layers (96; 10 week old) divided in to four equal groups (3 replicates of 8 birds each) were offered either conventional control diet or diet containing 2.4, 4.8 or 7.2% broken rice (replacing 0, 5, 10 and 15% maize w/w) for 4 months. Egg production was significantly higher (P<0.05) with significantly (P<0.05) better feed conversion efficiency and better economics of production in group fed 2.4% rice kani based diet than other dietary treatment. It was concluded that broken rice could substitute maize at 5% level in the diet of laying Japanese quails.
