Growth Performance of Broilers Chicken Fed Graded Levels of Ceiba Pentandra Leaf Meal

Igugo R U. | Nwosu C I. | Anochili C I

Abstract: The study was carried out to evaluate the effects of feeding Ceiba Pentandra leaf meal (CPLM) on growth performance of Starter and Finisher broiler chicken. Sixty (60) clinically healthy Agrited broiler chicken were used for the study. Four experimental diets were compounded using CPLM at 0 (T1), 5 (T2), 10 (T3) and 15 % (T4) inclusion levels respectively. The birds were weighed and randomly assigned to the four dietary treatments replicated three times with five birds per replicate in a completely randomized design. The proximate composition of CPLM showed it contains 8.7 % moisture, 35 % carbohydrate, 19.28 % crude protein, 10.64 % fat, 21.38 % fibre and 8.00 % ash. The following parameters were evaluated body weight gain, feed intake, while feed conversion ratio were calculated. These parameters were evaluated at both the starter and finisher phase of the boiler chicken. The result on growth performance increased significantly (P
