Replacement of Sesame Oil Meal by Coconut Oil Meal in Diets with or Without Fish Meal on the Performance of Laying Hen

M.H. Kawsar, M.A. Rashid and M.Eunos Ali    

Abstract: 56 star cross brown-579 commercial layers of 43 weeks of age were taken into experiment and grouped into 4. It was found that D4 (20% coconut oil meal + 12.5% soybean oil meal) consumed highest feed (126.5g/d) than D1 (125.1 g/d), D3 (124.2 g/d) & D2 (123.3 g/d). The hen lay egg production of D1, D2 & D3 dietary groups almost similar but of D4 was higher.The higher egg weight (64.4g/egg) was observed in D2 dietary group and lowest in D4 group (61.5). The D4 dietary group showed lower feed efficiency (2.61) than D1 (2.6), D3 (2.57) & D2 (2.52) non-significantly. The live weight gain of the D2 & D1 dietary groups were non-significantly higher than those fed on D3 & D4 diets. The feed cost was lower for per kg egg production by the D4 (Tk. 23.01) dietary group due to the use of low cost(COM & SOM) vegetable protein based diet but there was no significant differences among the dietary groups. So there is economic feasibility of feeding the coconut oil meal with or without fish meal in layer diets.
