The paper deals with the results of research of activity of enzymes of superoxide dismutase and catalase, and also amount of products of lipid peroxidation, in tissue of liver and pancreas of quails in the postnatal period of ontogenesis and their correction by the grinded corn of amaranth. It is established that the first weeks of quails life is distinguished by a deficiency of antioxidant system, and the corn of amaranth activates the enzymes of antioxidant defence, that favours a decrease in the content of lipid peroxidation products in the studied organs.

Key words: lipid peroxidation, enzymes of antioxidant protection, liver, pancreas, postnatal period of ontogenesis, quails, amaranth.
