Abstract Trial was conducted to study the effect of various probiotics with vitamin C on growth performance of Japanese quails from day old to sixth week of age. One hundred and seventy five, day old chicks were weighed individually and they were uniformly distributed as twenty five chicks each in seven groups viz.,T0,TvTz, T:, T+, T5 and T6. The control group (T0) receiving standard quail diet, group T1 received standard quail diet with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (0.05 o%), group T2 received standard quail diet with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (0.05 oh) and vitamin C (0.01 %), group T3 received standard quail diet with Lactobacillus sporogenes (0.05 %), group Ta received standard quail diet with Lactobacillus sporogenes (0.05%) and vitamin C (0.01 o/o), group T5 received standard quail diet with Saccharomyces boulardii (0.05 Yo) and group T6 received standard quail diet with Saccharomyces boulardii (0.05 o/o) and vitamin C (0.01 %). The observations were recorded for weekly body weight, average weekly feed consumption, average weekly gain in body weight, average weekly feed conversion ratio, nitrogen retention and dressing percentage. The average initial live body weights of the quail chicks from T6 to T6 groups were 6.8, 6.96,7.0, 6.84, 6.96, 7.04 and 7.0 g, respectively. The corresponding body weight of the quails at the end of sixth week for the groups T6 to T6 were 141.4, 147.0, 150.2, 133.2, 150.8, 145.0 and 142.0 g, respectively. Significant difference was recorded among the treatment groups. The average cumulative gain in body n-eight of quails of six weeks were 134.6, 140.04, 138.2, 126.36, 143.84. 137.96 and 135 g for T6 to T6 groups, respectively. The difference in average cumulative gain in weight of different groups were statistically significant. The average total feed consumption during six weeks by quails in groups T6 to T6 was 532.97,524.4,489.83, 712.8,526.8,572.16 and 557.28 g, respectively. Statistically significant difference was observed in feed consumption among treatment groups. The average feed conversion ratio for groups Ts to T6 were 4.22, 4.03, 3.84, 5.65, 3.59, 4.14 and 4.18, respectively. Various treatments showed statistically significant effect on average feed conversion ratio. The highest dressing percentage was observed in Ta Q9%) group followed by T2 Q7.8%), T1 Q6.35%), T5 Q4.62%), T6 Q2.77%), T0 (71 .3oA), and T3 68.23%) group. The per cent nitrogen retention in T4 Ql.2%) group followed by T2 rc9.23%), T1 (68.75%), T5 (68%), T 6 (67 .86%), T 0 64.610/o), and T 3 6 5%) group. The cost of production per 100 g of meat was accounted to be Rs. 7.10,6.84, 6.70,7.55,6.68,8.31 and 8.55 for Te to T6 groups, respectively. The results indicated that Lactobacillus sporogenes (0.05%) along with vitamin C (0.01%) to Japanese quails reduce the cost of production of meat.
