The influence of supplementation of main diet with complex of essential amino acids (L-lysine, DL-methionine, L-threonine and Vitamin E) for hematological (RBC count, WBC count and platelets) and reproductive (egg`s productivity, content of carotenoids. Vitamins A, E and B2 in eggs) values of Japanese breed quails was investigated. Four groups of birds were formed. First group was a control one (birds got main diet), and a second, third and fourth ones were experimental (L-lysine, DL-methionine, L-threonine and Vitamin E were supplemented to the diet in different dosages through 45 days). Enrichment of main diet by the investigated biologically active complex improves the RBC number in the blood of birds by 9.87 to 11.3 %. With supplementation of that complex egg`s, the productivity is increased by 13.8 %. Concurrently, the contents of carotenoid’s, Vitamins A, E and B2 in eggs were increased that enhances its biological value. It can be assumed that improvement of quantative values as well as biological value of eggs are influenced by higher fermentative activity of gastro-intestinal organs of birds, as a result of nutrients from diets.

Keywords: Quails; RBCs; WBCs; platelets; reproductive function; lysine; methionine; threonine; Vitamin E; egg`s productivity.
