Abstract
A six week growth performance trial involving 450 birds was conducted to determine the dietary requirement of broiler chicks for available methionine (AM). Body weight gain was significantly (p<0.01) lower on high AM diet (1411 g/bird) than low AM (1470 g/bird) diets. The feed intake by birds ranged from 3241 5.69 in high AM diet to 3321 5.69 g/bird in low AM diet. The feed efficiency for the three diets having low, normal and high level of AM were 2.26 .02, 2.24 .02, 2.30 .02, respectively. The results indicated that the birds fed high AM diet consumed significantly (p<0.01) more feed per unit body weight gain as compared to birds on low and normal AM diets.
