The objective of the present study was to determine the effects of based corn-soybean diets containing different levels of organic zinc (Zn) from zinc proteinate (ZP) on performance, some carcass parameters and Zn concentrations of serum, liver and pancreas in chukar partridges. Total 240 1-d-old chukar partridges were divided into five experiment groups of 48 birds each and each treatment was replicated four times with 12 birds per replicate pen. The five treatments included: 1) Control, with supplemental Zn (inorganic source) coming only from ingredients; 2) Control + ZP (25 ppm Zn in diet); 3) Control + ZP (50 ppm Zn in diet); 4) Control + ZP (75 ppm Zn in diet); 5) Control + ZP (100 ppm Zn in diet). Supplemental Zn from ZP effected BW at 8 weeks and BWG at 0-8 weeks of age (p
