AbstractThis study was conducted to investigate the effect of using different level of ginger continuously and intermittently during the week on productive performance ,feed utilization and feed conversion efficiency of layers. A total number of 120 layers (Iraqi Mezo) was randomly distributed in to 5 treatments, each treatment involved 24 layers, by two replicates/ treatment(12 layers/ replicate). A standard diet was fed to the layers, ginger powder was added by 4 and 6gm/kg feed for a period of 4 weeks continuously for T2 and T4 respectively and whole of the week for T3 andT5 respectively.
Egg production was recorded according to H.D., feed consumption and feed conversion rate were recorded according to the total egg production , more over the accumulative egg production and egg mass were calculated as well.
Results revealed significant differences of mean weekly production and feed efficiency for treatment of ginger addition and there were significant differences of feed consumption for T4. The results indicated also significant differences of egg mass for the addition treatments as compared with control and the egg weights were not significant . The best results of all of the studied traits in T4(6gm/kg ratio, 4day for week) .
