ÑABSTRACT

  A 14 week feeding trial was conducted using one hundred and twenty eight point of lay Isa brown strain of pullets (16 weeks old) to evaluate the effect of feeding diets containing cassava root meal (CRM) with activated charcoal supplementation on their serum biochemical indices. Four experimental diets were formulated. The CRM was included at the rate of 25, 50, and 75% levels respectively to replace maize of the control diet. The birds were randomly allotted to four dietary treatment groups. Diet 1 was the control containing 0% of CRM. Diet 2, 3, and 4 had 25, 50, and 75% of CRM with 40g/Kg activated charcoal supplementation respectively. There were four replicates per treatment with eight birds per replicate in a completely randomized design experiment. Significant (p<0.05) differences

were observed in the albumin, total protein, total cholesterol and alanine amino transferase of all treated groups. Replacement of CRM for maize increased the total cholesterol of birds. However, similarities (p>0.05) were observed in the triglyceride, aspartate amino transferase and alkaline phosphatase across all treatments. It can be concluded from the study that 75% of CRM with activated charcoal supplementation could replace maize without any adverse or deleterious effect on the biochemical indicies of laying chickens.
