Abstract: An experiment was conducted to assess the growth performance of quails on supplementation of seaweeds. 600 numbers of day old quail chicks were randomly divided into four groups with five replicates and 25 chicks in each replicate. Seaweeds viz., Chaetomorpha antennina, Sargassum wightii and Gracilaria corticata were collected from Gulf of Mannar region and was dried and included in the ration @ 3 % level and treated as group - 2, 3 and 4, respectively. Quail on normal ration was kept as control (Group -1). The trial was conducted for six weeks period. Daily feed intake and weekly changes in body weight were recorded. Analyzing the data revealed that there is no significant differences in body weight and FCR @ 3 % level of seaweeds supplementation compared to control group.
