Abstract: This study was carried out at the poultry farm of Animal Resources Dept. / College of Agricultural/ University of Kufa during the period from 16/9/2014 to 21/10/2014 to investigate the effect of partial replacement of Rice bran for Yellow Corn in broiler diets on productive performance. One hundred and ninety eight chicks of commercial strain at 1 day old were used in this study the chick were individually weighed and randomly distributed into three treatments. Each treatment included three replicates (20 chicks/replicate).The treatments were as follows Group1 control (T0) (content 50 % yellow corn + free of rice bran), Second (T1) substituted of 25 % of raw rice bran by yellow corn, third (T2) substituted of 50 % of raw rice bran by yellow corn. The results revealed that T0 was significantly (P<0.05) higher than other groups in live body weight, weight gain and feed consumption at 5 week of age, whereas T2 was significantly (P<0.05) lower as compared with other treatments. There were significant differences between groups in feed conversion ratio. The results revealed that the treatments included 25 or 50 % Rice bran showed significant differences as compared to control group (free of rice bran) in the percentage.
