Abstract

An experiment is conducted to determine the effect of magnetic water on the production performance and blood characteristics of common quail, Coturnix coturnix (Linnaeus, 1758). The experimental treatments included T1 = control treatment, T2 = drinking water magnetization at1000 gauss, T3 = drinking water magnetization at 1500 gauss, T4 = diet sprayed with magnetized water 1000 gauss, T5 = diet sprayed with magnetized water 1500 gauss, each treatment with three replicates. The results showed significant superiority of control group in the body weight, weight gain and feed intake compared with treated groups. The egg shell thickness of T2 showed a significant decrease compared to other groups. The third treatment showed a significant superiority in red blood cell count compared with T1, T4 and T5, while T5 appeared significant reduction in white blood cell count compared with other treatments. There was significant reduction in blood glucose, total protein, cholesterol, and triglyceride in T4 compared with control.
