Two experiments were conducted. In experiment 1, chickens were fed dried Bacillus subtilis var. natto for 3 or 28 days. Growth performance and internal organs were not different from controls, but feed efficiency tended to be improved in the 28-day feeding. In these birds, blood ammonia concentration was decreased (P<0.05). Blood glucose concentration, and amylase and lipase activity in the intestinal content were not significantly different among dietary groups. These results suggest that the… CONTINUE READING
