An experiment was conducted in mixed sexes broiler chickens 1-d-old (Ross 308) to investigate the effects of 25hydroxycholecalciferol (25-OH-D3) on growth performance parameters, immunity and bone calcification. A completely randomized design with 4 experimental diets was used: 1) diet with cholecalciferol (VIT-D3) at 200 IU/kg of feed (NRC-1994 level); 2) diet with 25-OH-D3 at 69 μg/kg of feed; 3) diet with VIT-D3 at 2000 IU/kg of feed (commercial level); and 4) as diet 3+25-OH-D3 at 69 μg/kg… CONTINUE READING
