Abstract: The biological trial of twenty-four weeks duration was carried out with 400 adult Japanese quails equally and randomly distributed into ten treatment groups of two replicates. All the quails were housed in multi-tier breeder cages up to thirty weeks of age. The quails in control group were fed corn-soya based diet with no multi-enzyme supplementation. 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. The means hen-housed egg production in different treatments showed significant variation (P<0.05 and P<0.01) except for 19-22 and 27-30 weeks age intervals. But, the means hen-day egg production in different treatments showed significant variation (P<0.05 and P<0.01) except for 15-18 and 19-22 weeks age intervals. The means for feed efficiency per dozen eggs was significantly (P<0.05 and P<0.01) influenced by the treatments during 11-14, 23-26 and 27-30 weeks age intervals. Similarly, the means for feed efficiency per kg eggs was significantly by the different treatments during 15-18, 23-26 and 27-30 weeks age intervals The enzyme supplementation did not influence the hen-hosed hen-day egg production and feed efficiency (per dozen eggs and per kg egg mass).
