Single cell protein (SCP) was tested in partial replacement of plant proteins in broiler rations. Sixty day-old broiler chicks were allotted randomly to 4x3x5 arrangement. Isocaloric isonitrogenous rations for the four groups were formulated when SCP replaced conventional plant proteins (33% of the ration) in the ratios 0, 25, 50 and 75 % respective to groups 1, 2, 3 and 4. The feeding period was continued for 6 weeks. No apparent digestive or ill health effects were observed at all feeding levels of replacement. Treatment effect was not significant (p > 0.05) in all performance, carcass and non-carcass yield and meat quality attributes at all levels of dietary SCP, yielding similar (p>0.05) means. No fishy smell or add flavours were recorded with subjective meat qualities. Keywords: Single cell protein Energy replacement Broilers Carcass yield
