Abstract
An experiment was conducted during Nov. to Dec. 1996 at high altitude (1800 m) under temperate climate in Himalayan hills of Uttar Pradesh to explore the possibility of utilization of different type of litter material for raising of broiler under deep litter system. Two hundred commercial broiler chicks (Vancob) of a single batch were divided equally into four groups and reared for 8 weeks under deep litter consisting of rice husk, wheat straw, saw dust and chaffed dry pine needles. Results showed that neither 8 week body weights (1727–1754g) nor weekly or total mortality or feed efficiency differed significantly among the experimental groups suggesting that pine needle available in hilly area could be used as an alternative litter material.
