Abstract: We conduct this experiment to assess the effect of feeding Hyacinth bean seeds on broiler hicks’s performance. one hundred and forty unsexed one day old chicks (Ross)were used. Four diets were formulated with 0% (control, Diet A) or 10 % processed Hyacinth bean seeds, the three diets contained either wet processed (diet B), wet processed with enzyme supplementation (diet C)or dry processed (diet D). traits studied were feed consumption, weight gain, feed conversion ratio , hot carcass weight and dressing percentage. Results revealed that treatments significantly (P>0.05) affected feed consumption. Generally, chicks in group A (control) and group B (treated plus enzyme) reported high estimates throughout the experiment while that in group D (dry treated) reported the lowest estimates. On the other hand, treatments exhibited on significant (P>0.05) effects on weight gain, feed conversion ratio, hot carcass and dressing percent. Results indicated that as Hyacinth bean seeds is underused by humans it can be used in poultry feeding as a sources of proteins.
