This experiment was conducted to study the effect of adding different levels of potato peel meal to the production performance and some characteristics of the carcass and the internal organs in the squab male pigeons. where it used 15 squabs male from domestic pigeon with one month age, it was randomly divided three treatments (5birdes/treatment), then each treatment was divided into 5 replicates (5birdes/replicate). All groups were fed free nutrition on diets closely related to their protein and energy content. potato peel was added to the diets by 10%، 20%. The feeding of the three groups lasted for a period of 30 day. some productive characteristics were calculated such as final weight، daily and total weight gain, the amount of feed consumption, the food conversion factor. At the end of the experiment, all birds were slaughtered and some of the characteristics of the carcass were studied, which include: weight after slaughter, weight after feathering, weight of carcass without entrails, weight of viscera, weight of front and back quarters, percentage of clearance, as well as weight of some internal organs such as heart, liver, spleen, kidney, gizzard, legs and head.
The results indicated that there was a significant (P<0.05) effect of potato peel by a percentage 10%, 20% in some studied productive traits, which increased significantly (P<0.05) in the final weight, the total weight increase, and the food conversion factor, while there was no significant erosion in the daily weight increase and amount of feed consumption. The results also indicated that there was a significant (P<0.05) effect of potato peel in some traits after slaughtering, while there was no significant illness in weight by number, feathering, carcass weight without guts, weight of front and back quarters, percentage of clearance, as well as potato peel in the diet had no significant effect. In the proportions of the eaten and non eaten parts.
