The response of growing Japanese quails (White Breasted line-CARI UJJWAL, n=900, divided into 36 subgroups) to three dietary levels of essential amino acids (EAA) at three different metabolizable energy (ME) levels (3×3 factorial design) on growth and immunity was investigated. Nine diets including three levels of ME (2700, 2900 and 3100 kcal/kg) each at three levels of EAA (low, medium and high) were formulated. Each diet was offered to 4 replicated groups of 25 Japanese quails up to 5 weeks of age. The ratio of lysine to protein and the level of methionine and threonine to lysine, as specified by NRC (NRC, 1994), remained almost similar in all the diets. Body weight gain, feed intake and feed conversion ratio did not differ statistically due to the treatments i.e. interaction of ME and EAA levels.
