Rate of feed passage in Japanese quail

Abstract: The rate of passage (ROP) in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) influences the exposure time of food to the digestion and absorption processes. Consequently, ROP affects the efficiency of nutrient utilization and energy from the diet. This study aimed to determine the physiological parameters that characterize the digestive response, such as first appearance time (FAT), ROP, mean retention time (MRT) and transit time (TT) in adult Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica), and to evaluate the effects of sex, a… Show more

“…The use of barium sulfate as a radiological indicator allowed for a more accurate analysis of the DFP in the GIT, which could not have been obtained with other indicators used conventionally, such as titanium and chromium. Despite the use of conventional indicators, simple digestive responses could be evaluated (Nóbrega et al, 2020).…”

“…The first results on the dynamics of food passage in the GIT of Japanese quails (Nóbrega et al, 2020) were notable: the values of the first appearance time (FAT) and mean retention time (MRT) were lower than those of commercial layers, indicating a rapid passage of food in the GIT. In addition, diets with low and high concentrations of metabolizable energy showed differences in time to of first appearance and MRT.…”
