This research investigates the effects of dietary palm oil with or without vitamin E to feed ration for Japanese quails (Coturnix japonica). The aspects studied were growth performance, abdominal fat pad weight and crude fat content of breast meat. The research was conducted in Agropark, Jeli Campus of University Malaysia Kelantan for 28 days. A total numbers of 48 quails (21 days-old birds) were used and were fed for a period of 28 days. Others supplemented diet used were 3% of palm oil, 200mg/kg of vitamin E and also commercial feed. There were 4 treatments and each treatment contains 3 replications.
