  One hundred and forty-four (144) day old Anak 2000 broiler chicks were used to investigate the growth response as well as organ characteristics of broiler chickens fed graded levels of kola pod husk meal (KPHM). The birds were randomly allotted to four dietary treatments groups containing 0%, 10%, 20% and 30% KPHM. There were two replicates per treatments with 18 birds per replicate in a completely randomized design. The birds placed on control diet utilized their feed more efficiently (P< 0.05) than other treatments. The broilers fed 10% and 20% KPHM were able to convert the diet more efficiently (P< 0.05) than the broilers on 30% KPHM. Treatment effects on weight gain, feed: gain ratio, dressed weight, length of small intestine, length of colon, length of caecum, weights of kidney and lung were significantly (P< 0.05) different. Growth rate decreased significantly (P< 0.05) with increasing level of KPHM in the diet. However, no significant (P>0.05) difference was observed in protein efficiency ratio, nitrogen retention, dry matter digestibility and crude fibre digestibility of the birds fed different diets. It could be concluded that KPHM inclusion in broiler diet up to 10% dietary level will adversely affect the performance of broilers.

  Jatropha curcas seeds were processed and defatted to obtain the seed cake. About 60 g of the were separately moistened in 0.1-0.5 M NaOH and Ca (OH)2 solutions and were autoclaved. Each of the autoclaved samples was separately divided into 3 portions. A portion was washed with ethanol, another with water and the 3rd was left unwashed. Prolamin, albumin, globulin and glutelin fractions were extracted from the treated and untreated seed cakes and subsequently quantified. Untreated seed cake sample afforded; 0.11 g kg-1 prolamin, 4.06 g kg-1 albumin, 4.23 g kg-1 globulin and 10.91 g kg-1 glutelin of seed proteins. In Ca (OH)2 treated cake, albumin and globulin had their maximum yield in ethanol washed cake samples. The quantities obtained were 3.95 and 5.11 g kg-1 of the seed protein, respectively. Prolamin and glutelin had their maximum yield in unwashed and water washed cake samples. The yields were 4.84 and 9.27 g kg-1 of the seed protein, respectively. In NaOH treated seed cake, the 4 fractions had their maximum yield in water washed cake. The quantities were 3.37 and 3.64 g kg-1 of seed protein for prolamin and albumin. The quantities of globulin and glutelin were 4.90 and 9.26 g kg-1 of seed proteins. Quantity of prolamin increased in all the treated cake, while the quantities of albumin, globulin and glutelin were reduced by the treatments.
