Abstract: The response of laying Japanese quails (TANUVAS Namakkal gold Japanese quail, n=360) to three dietary levels of metabolizable energy (ME) and lysine (3×3 factorial design) on egg production performance was investigated in cage housing system. Nine diets including three levels of ME (2700, 2800 and 2900 Kcal/kg) each at three levels of lysine (0.8, 0.9 and 1.0 per cent) were fed to 4 replicated groups of 10 Japanese quail layers each from 10 to 29 weeks of age. The low and medium (2700 and 2800 Kcal/kg) energy showed signi cant (P<0.05) increase in hen day egg production. Feed consumption was signi cantly (P<0.01) higher in low energy level followed by medium and high (2800 and 2900 Kcal/kg) energy levels. Based on this it is concluded that the ration formulated at medium energy (2800 Kcal/kg) and high lysine (1.0 %) group (T8) might improve the net pro t per egg over feed cost.
