Abstract: Day old 600 Japanese quail chicks were equally and randomly distributed into ten treatment groups of two replicates having 30 chicks in each. All the chicks were reared on cages upto six weeks of age. The chicks in control group were fed corn-soya based diet with no multi-enzyme group. Treatment groups were fed on diets containing 25, 50, 75 and 100 per cent levels of sunflower cake replacing the protein mix consisting of 60% groundnut cake and 40% DORB on an isolysine, isomethionine, isocalric and isonitrogenous with no multi-enzyme supplementation and, similar treatment groups were fed with multi-enzyme supplementation. Highly significant (P<0.01) differences were noticed between the treatments for six weeks body weight. Quails performed better up to 50 per cent replacement levels. The feed efficiency in different treatments showed highly significant variation (P<0.01) and was the best between 25 to 50 per cent replacement levels. Neither the dietary treatment nor the enzyme supplementation influenced the livability and carcass traits.
