In a chick growth assay over a 10-day period, no significant difference could be established between the effects of DL methionine, methyl maleic methionine and the methyl hydroxyl analogue of methionine on growth rate and efficiency of feed conversion. However, maleic methionine was unable to support growth rate to the same extent as the other products tested.
