A very little information is available in literature on management of Japanese quail (Couturnix Couturnix Japonica) in different housing system (cage system and deep litter system) of management. The average weekly body weight gain was significantly higher in deep litter system (34±0.43gm) than cage (12.71±0.41gm) system at the 3rd week of age. The average daily feed consumption by individual quails was higher in cage (12.71±2.10) than deep litter system (11.84±1.47) during 0-6 weeks of age. The haematobiochemical profile viz Hb (gm%),TEC (106/µl ),PCV(%),TLC(103/ µl)along with biochemical studies as blood sugar (mg/dl), total serum protein (gm/dl),serum calcium (mg/100ml) and serum phosphorus (mg/dl) were well within the normal health of quail under both cage and deep litter system of management.
