Abstract

Influence of aging on N and ME utilization in germ-free and conventional (CV) chicks was investigated at Stage 1 (2 to 6 days old) and Stage 2 (10 to 14 days old). Chicks were fed diets for ad libitum consumption with protein concentrations of 116, 220, or 445 g/kg diet. The N utilization was not affected by the gut microflora at either stages, but it significantly decreased for chicks on the high-protein diet compared with those on the low-protein and adequate-protein diets. The ME values of diets were not influenced by treatments, except for the high-protein diet at Stage 1, in which ME was significantly reduced.
