Abstract

The results of the study showed the statistical significant difference (P≥0.05) for each of the relative weight of the yolk and egg whites, the relative weight of the shell and the Hauh unit, which is affected positively by the addition of ground fenugreek seed and Laurels leave to the quail bird's diet. There is also a statistically significant difference positively for each of the percentage of ash, protein and carbohydrates for qualis egg, while there is no significant difference for both the percentage of moisture and fat. The results of the mineral estimation showed an increase in each of the elements of iron, copper and cadmium from the addition of fenugreek and laurels leave, while there was no significant difference for the lead element. The results also showed an increase in the percentage of unsaturated fatty acids such as oleic, linoleic and linolenic, and a decrease in the proportions of saturated fatty acids. In addition, the results of the sensory evaluation of boiled quail eggs presented to the evaluators showed high acceptance in terms of color, flavor, taste and general appearance of all additives and their high conformity from the control sample.
