Title: The Evaluation of Biscuits Waste as Alternative Energy Sources in Broiler Diet
Author: Sidahmed, Maisaa Siddig Mohammed Ahmed
Abstract: This study was carried out to investigate the impact of including different levels of biscuit waste as energy source on broiler growth performance . One hundred and sixty one-day-old, unsexed broiler chicks (Ross strain) were used. The birds were randomly divided into four equals groups each of 40 birds and assigned in four replicates (10 birds/replicate) in completely randomize design. Four iso-caloric and iso-nitrogenous diets were formulated to meet the nutrient requirements for broiler chicks The first group was fed on diet containing 0% biscuit waste while the second, third and fourth group were fed on diet containing 30%, 40% and 50% biscuit waste respectively. The parameters measure were feed intake, body weight gain and FCR. At the end of experimental period (2peird/replicate) were randomly chosen weighed and slaughtered. Birds fed 0% biscuit waste consumed significantly (P<0.05) more feed. However, the birds receiving 50% biscuit waste showed significantly (P<0.05) best FCR, dressing percentage and lower gizzard weight. Weight gain and serum parameters (Cholesterol, Triglyceride, and Glucose) were not affected by the dietary biscuit waste. The birds receiving the diet containing 50% biscuits waste recorded lower feed cost than the control and other treatments. It was concluded that biscuit waste can be used as feed for broilers chicks without any adverse effect on performance and carcass value of broilers chicks.
