Abstract: This study was conducted to investigate the effect of chickpea seeds on performance and blood constituents of broilers. One hundred and twenty eight unsexed one day old (Ross) broiler chicks were randomly assigned to four approximately isocaloric and isonitrogenous diets labeled as follows: Diet (F0) containing 0% chickpea (control diet), diet (F1) 10% chickpea substitute same levels of sesame meal and groundnuts meal, diet (F2) 10% chickpea substitute from groundnuts meal only and diet (F3) 10% chickpea substitute from sesame meal only. Each treatment had four replicates with 8 birds/ replicate. The study lasted for 8 weeks. Parameters 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. The results showed significant decrease (P<0.05) in feed intake) for birds consumed the diets supplemented with chickpeas than control. Body weight gain, pre slaughter weight and carcass weight were significantly (P<0.05) greater for birds received diet F0 (1527.37g), (1615.49g), (1195.32g) respectively and diet F3 (1430.80g), (1472.29g), (1072.06g) respectively and lower for birds received diet F2 (937.71g), (761.58g) and (533.29g) respectively. No significant differences were observed in feed conversion ratio and protein efficiency ratio among all dietary treatments. Broiler chicks received diet F2 recorded significantly (P<0.05) poorer dressing percentage than other treated diets. All the treatments had no significant (P>0.05) effect on serum glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride, total protein, calcium and inorganic phosphorus levels. Broiler chicks received diet F3 recorded the highest profitability than other groups.
