Title: Feed composition for broilers and method for breeding broilers

Abstract: Coenzyme Q is added to a feed composition for broilers, preferably in an amount of from 0.0005 to 0.003% by weight of the total amount of the composition, and the composition is controlled to have a metabolizable energy value of not smaller than 3150 kcal/kg. The coenzyme Q-containing composition is pelletized into pellets. This is fed to broilers for 7 days or longer while the broilers being fed therewith are of 10 to 35-days age. Feeding broilers with the pelletized, coenzyme Q-containing feed composition provided by the invention makes it possible to well prevent the broilers from having ascites and to increase the growth rate of the broilers, whereby raising rate of the broilers is increased and the rearing period thereof is shortened. According to the feeding method of the invention, the productivity in broiler raising is much increased.
