AbstractThe research was carried out in the Livestock Research Division / Nineveh Research Department using 720 birds at one-day-old, distributed on four substitution millet energy 0% (control), 20%, 30%, and 40% instead of corn energy, to study its effect on the growth and production periods for partridge. The results showed that the 30% substitution treatment was significantly superior (P <0.05) on control treatment in body weight, Also, in feed consumption, the three treatments were significantly superior (P < 0.05) on control treatment, while there was no significant difference between the four treatments for weight gain and food conversion ratio in the starter period (1-4) weeks of age. As for the growth period (5-24) weeks, a significant decrease (P <0.05) in body weight is observed with an increase in the millet replacement percentage, the control treatment was significantly superior (P <0.05) on the 30% substitution treatment in the weight gain, whereas the control treatment, decreased significantly (P <0.05) from the substitution treatment 40% in the feed consumption and food conversion ratio. As for the egg production stage, the control treatment was significantly superior (P <0.05) on 20% and 40% treatments in the number and percentage of eggs, the feed consumed was not affected by the treatments under study, while there was a significant difference (P <0.05) between the age of 26 weeks and the age of 33 weeks in feed consumption, Control treatment decreased significantly (P <0.05) from substitution treatment 20% in FCR / Dozen egg. the treatment of substitution 30% increased significantly (P <0.05) on control treatment for hatching%, fertility% and hatching from fertilized eggs%.
