Abstract

To the present day, quail breeding was carried out at pedigree level. However, there are no regulatory requirements for assessment of poultry. In order to develop the minimal requirements for assessing the productivity of egg and meat quail breeds for determining their valuation class, the productive qualities of quail breeds were assessed: egg breeds – Japanese and English white; meat breeds – Pharaoh and Radonezh. Additionally, in order to accumulate information, two meat-and-egg breeds were also evaluated – Omsk and Estonian ones. Based on the patterns of growth and development of quails of egg and meat breeds at the final stage of rearing (5 and 6 weeks), on the results of previous studies, as well as on the analysis of source materials for previous years, it was found that bird growth ends at 6 weeks. At the age of 7 weeks, the start of egg laying was observed in the studied breeds. Based on the data of egg production by months and calculations of economic safety of production, minimal requirements for the productivity of egg, meat-and-egg and meat quail breeds were developed.
