This experiment was conducted at the Poultry Farm, Poultry Research Station, State Board of Agriculture Research, Ministry of Agriculture, to study the effect of supplemental Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) to Japanese quail diets on productive performance. A total of 360 Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) female 60 days old were used in this study. They were randomly distributed to 3 treatments. Roselle flowers were supplemented at the levels of 0.2, 0.4% and compared with the control group for 140 days. The result showed a significant increase (P<0.05) in egg production percentage , accumulative egg number, egg weight and egg mass, while feed consumption increased significantly and feed conversion ratio improved significantly by supplementing 0.4% Roselle flower compared with supplementing 0.2% Roselle flower and control groups. Significant decrease in mortality percentage in Roselle treatments compared with control group. There were significant increase (P<0.05) in some egg interior quality by supplementing Roselle flower at two levels 0.2, 0.4% compared with control group.
