Production responses of laying quails fed with restricted feeding during rearing were measured in four trials. The research was an experimental observation applying Nested Complete Randomized Design. An experiment using 300 fourteen days old quails. The quails maintained under two feeding restriction programs feeding allotted to 2 dietary regimes, qualitative restricted feeding are Metabolize Energy (ME) R1= 2900 kcal/kg; R2 = 2800 kcal/kg and quantitative restricted feeding; P0 = 100% of ad libitum; P1 = 90% of ad libitum and P2 = 80% of ad libitum (n= 300). Each group (n= 50) has five replicates containing 10 birds each. Restricted feeding treatment is done for fourteen days old quail until its sexual maturity. After its sexual maturity, the feeding is given in ad libitum. Observation is conducted for the feed energy and protein consumption, and performance of egg production. The results of experiment indicate that the restricted feeding consequently significant influenced (P<0.01) on the protein and energy feed consumption. Restricted feeding until 90% ad libitum showed similar egg production with ad libitum treatment and decrease in feed conversion at the early production. Metabolize energy of ration does not have a significant effect to egg production with the result that a feed restriction of 90% ad libitum and EM feed of 2900 Kcal / kg can be applied during the starter period.
