Author: Yousif, Nagmeldien
Abstract: This study handled the nutritional value of Koreeb seeds for broiler chicks, Four dietary treatments were used in this study. Diet A is the control (0%) with no added Koreeb (100 % sorghum), diet B was supplemented with 10 % Koreeb diet C 20 % and diet D 30 % respectively. One hundred and twenty eight one-day old, unsexed Hubbard breed chicks were divided randomly into 16 pens. Each 8 birds / pens constitutes a replicate group and there are four replicates (4 with 8 bird ) for each treatments. Through six weeks experimental period, from 25 July to 6 September 2004. This results showed that : - Birds fed Koreeb seeds at different levels obtained similar feed in take, body weight gain and feed efficiency. - Koreeb seeds at 30 % levels (T4) resulted in non significant low feed intake, best weight gain and good feed utilization. - The effect of supplemental Koreeb seeds on broiler carcass weight and cuts weight of hot was higher for chicks fed Koreeb seed at 30% level than the control groups. - Results of this study proved that Koreeb seeds can substitute sorghum in the diet of broiler chick without any sacrifice on weight gain, feed intake or feed efficiency ,specially when it is available reasonable price in the western region of Sudan.
