Influence of Tamarind Pulp on Growth and Carcass Characteristics of Broiler Chickens

A study  was conducted to  determine the influence  of  an  aqueous  solution  of  tamarind  pulp  on  growth  and carcass characteristics of  broiler chickens.  One  hundred  and  sixty,  one  week  old broilers were  divided into  4 treatment  groups replicated  4  times in  a completely  randomized design.  The control  group  was  given  0g/L tamarind pulp (TP) while  the other groups  received 20g/L,  30g/L  and 40g/L  tamarind pulp in  drinking  wa...

Effect of Graded Levels of Maize Cob Meal as Replacement for Dietary Maize on the Carcass Characteristics of Growing Rabbits

ABSTRACTA feeding trial was conducted with thirty (30) weaner rabbits with average weight of 355.00g of mixed breed (New Zealand X American Chinchilla) and mixed sexes to investigate the nutritive potentials of maize cob meal (MCM). Thirty mixed breed rabbits were used and randomly assigned to treatment T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5 in which MCM replaced maize at 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20% weight for weight respectively at the rate of six (6) rabbits per dietary treatment. Results of preliminary (analytica...

Changes in growth, digestibility and gut anatomy by broilers fed diets containing ethanol- treated castor oil seed (Ricinus communis L.) meal.

ABSTRACTEight weeks feeding trial was conducted to investigate the chemical composition, growth response, apparent nutrient digestibility, gut characteristics and morphology of broiler chickens fed four diets containing ethanol-treated castor oil seed meal (ECAM). Two hundred day-old Anak 2000 broiler chicks were then allotted to the four experimental diets containing ECAM at 0, 100, 150 and 200 g/kg, respectively. Each treatment was replicated five times with 10 birds per replicate. The fina...
