Abstract

It was compared the productive performance of Rhode Island Red hens fed with commercial feed or replacement of a portion of the corn and soy for flour Cnidoscolus chayamansa leaves. 240 hens (60 animals/group), between 10 and 18 weeks old, were used in a control group (commercial feed) and three experimental groups (3; 6 and 9% flour C. chayamansa). The animals were reared on floor, with access to 50 m2 of grass Stenotathum secundatum/group, 6 hours/day. The diets had equal metabolizable energy content (10.83 MJ/kg) and crude protein (16.27%). Productive and nutritional indicators were calculated. The highest intakes were obtained in control (5028.50 g), 3% (4497.80 g) and 6% (4322.63 g) chayamansa C. inclusion. The highest end accumulated body weight was obtained in the control diets (1899 g) and 3% of C. chayamansa (1632.50 g). The lower conversion values were obtained in the control (2.65) and 3% of C. chayamansa (2.75). All diets covered the nutritional requirements. C. chayamansa increased the availability of calcium in the diet. Crude fiber did not exceed the permissible value, but increased from 2.61% in the control to 3.56% with 6% inclusion. It can replace 3% of the corn and soybean diet for Rhode Island Red hens in development and pre posture, for C. chayamansa and obtain productive behavior, consumption, conversion and efficiency of commercial balanced nutrients like.  

Keywords: Chaya, consumption, conversion, poultry, weight gain.
