Title: Effect of Dietary Raw Chick Pea ( Cicer arietinum L.) Seeds on Broiler Performance and Blood Constituents
Author: Algam, Tamador. A.; Atti, Khadiga A. Abdel; Fadel Elseed, A.M
Abstract: One hundred and twenty eight broiler chicks were used to evaluate the effect of dietary leve l chickpea seeds, on performance and some blood parameters of broilers. Four iso caloric and is o nitrog enous Experimental diets containing 0%, 5%, 10% and 15% raw chickpea seeds were formulated t o meet th e nutrients requirements as outlined by NRC (1994). Experiment was in a Completely Randomiz e (CRD) comprised broiler chick diet. Each treatment was replicated four times with 8 birds/replicate. The study lasted for 45 days. Param eters measured were feed intake, body weight gain, Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR), pre-slaughter weight, dressing percentage, protein efficiency, some blood parameters (glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride, total protein, calcium and phosphorus) and profitability. Results revealed that treatment had n o sign ificant effect in feed intake and blood serum parameters. Birds fed 10% and 15% of chickpea showe d si milar performance to control significant (p<0.05) on body weight gain Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR), pre - slau ghter weight, dressing percentage, protein efficiency, However, birds fed on 5% level is significantl y (p<0.05) lower on weight gain, carca ss weight and Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR), bird fed 10%level chickpea has better effect on net profit
