Abstract
Sixty-four 4-week Did Hyperco Gold line broiler chicks were used, in a completely randomized design experiment of four treatments consisting of four replicates, each of which had four birds, during a preliminary. In addition a 23 percent crude protein (CP) commercial broiler ration (Livestock Feeds Ltd., Nigeria) two other diets were formulated to be isonitrogenous and isocaloric with the control diet (Diet 2). 'J1he control diet had Groundnut-cake (GNC) as the major protein supplement with a zero inclusion of dried poultry droppings (DPD), while Diet 3 and Diet 4 had S percent and 10 percent inclusion’s of DPD respectively which replaced equivalent amounts of GNC.
