Abstract: 

BACKGROUND: Perspolis powder has compounds that is effective on performance and immune system of quails.
OBJECTIVES: The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of feeding different levels of propolis powder (0, 500, 1000 and 1500 mg / kg) on performance and immune system of quail chicks.
METHODS: Three hundred and twenty day-old Japanese quails (hatche) were allocated in a completely randomly design with 4 treatments and 4 replications per treatment until 36 days olds. At the end of experiment, live weight, feed conversion ratio, feed intake, European production efficiency factor, performance index, protein efficiency ratio, immune response and carcass parameters were measured.
RESULTS: At 36 days of age, results showed that using 1000 mg/kg propolis powder as compared to other treatments increased live weight and improved feed conversion ratio, European production efficiency factor and performance index (P<0.05). Consumption of propolis powder had not significant effect on carcass percentage of quails. Feeding 1000 mg/kg propolis powder as compared to control group increased antibody titers against Newcastle disease and influenza and the total number of white blood cells in the males and females (P<0.05). Consumption of 1000 mg/kg propolis powder increased weight of bursa fabricius gland in females (p<0.05). Propolis powder consumption increased percentage of hematocrit in males as compared to control group (P<0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: According to results of this experiment, growth performance and immune system of Japanese quail chicks fed diet containing 1000 mg/kg of propolis powder was better than other treatments.
