The chicks were fed with standard starter and finisher 0 to three weeks and from 4 to 6 weeks of age, respectively during experiment. The control group (T0) fed on basal diet without any supplementation and other eight treatments groups were supplemented with 0.1 per cent FSP (T1), 0.2 per cent FSP (T2), 0.1 per cent GSP (T3), 0.2 per cent GSP (T4), 0.1 per cent FSP and 0.1 per cent GSP (T5), 0.1 per cent FSP and 0.2 per cent GSP (T6), 0.2 per cent FSP and 0.1 per cent GSP (T7) and 0.2 per cent FSP and 0.2 per cent GSP (T8), respectively.
