Abstract

An experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of one percent dietary citric and ascorbic acid additions on performance and intestinal pH of young chicks. The citric and ascorbic acid additions did not affect chick performance or pH of the duodenal lumen contents. Also, pH of the duodenal lumen contents was not affected by 1:2 to 1:8 dilutions with distilled water.
