The ration of growing chicks was supplemented by chick, sheep, and cattle excreta in fresh, dried (45-50 degrees C) and sterilized (90 degrees C, 30 mins.) form with 4%, compared with a control ration. The development of the live weight was better in all supplemented ration groups than in the control group. It decreased in this order: fresh - dried - sterilized - (control). Chick excreta were most favourable, least favourable were those of cattle. Feed conversion (food consumption/unit live weight (increase) showed the same trend as the development of the live weight, the rations with fresh excreta being most favourable. 10 data are presented from the results of slaughtering. Slaughtering results were between 70 and 76%, and gave most favourable values in supplementation with fresh excreta and dried excreta from chicks and sheep. A marked influence was found on the length of the intestine (cm/100 g live weight). The mortality rate varied between 0 and 5% in the groups; it was 5% in the control group.
