Ninety six laying quails (72 females and 24 males) at 48 weeks of age were reared in cages and randomly allocated with 4 dietary treatments one was the control group (without any additives) (T1); the others were (0.5 %, 1.0 % and 1.5 % parsley) added to (T2, T3 and T4) respectively, each group consist of 24 birds and divided to 3 Replicates (8 birds). Water and feed were provided ad libitum during the experimental period. There were no significant difference in egg weight and feed efficiency among the groups while there were significant in hen day egg production (H.D %), total cumulative egg number, egg mass and feed consumption due to parsley seeds in quail compared with control.
