Abstract: An experiment was designed and conducted to study the effects of Asparagus racemosus (shatavari) root powder on growth performance, egg production and hatchability in Japanese quails. The per cent dry matter, crude protein, crude fibre, ether extract, total ash, acid insoluble ash and nitrogen free extract in Asparagus racemosus was 97.26, 5.83, 17.64, 0.33, 3.59, 0.43 and 72.69, respectively. The calcium, phosphorus and magnesium of Asparagus racemosus were 0.83, 0.61 and 0.19 per cent, respectively. The copper, iron, zinc, manganese and cobalt levels in Asparagus racemosus were 3.14, 21.14, 2.07, 13.41 and 1.23 ppm, respectively. Asparagus racemosus root powder contained 3237 Kcal/ kg gross energy.
