Two experiments were conducted each consisting of two trials. Day-old Bobwhite quail were fed a starter diet containing a microbial preparation of Lactobacilli. In both experiments the experimental diets were fed for 5 weeks. No significant differences in growth, feed efficiency, or mortality were found between the control and Lactobacilli supplemented diets. Mortality was higher than normal within all treatments but unaffected by treatment.
