  The study examines the proximate and mineral elements constituents of water soaked Jack Bean (Carnavalia ensiformis) seeds. The seeds were subjected to four treatments which comprised: 24 hrs, 48 hrs, 72 hrs and 96 hrs soaking in cold water with each treatment made up of three replicates. After the expiration of each soaking period, the water was discarded, sun-dried for 7 days and thereafter milled to pass through 1 mm sieve and subjected to laboratory analysis. The study revealed the following: dry matter increased after 96 hrs of soaking. Crude protein (CP) however decreased in value from 21% to 17%. Soaking for 48 hrs led to a reduction in the crude fibre (CF) content of seeds. Prolonged soaking period of 96 hrs increased the ether extract (EE) level. However, total ash content was reduced in seeds soaked for 96 hrs soaking. Soaking for 96 hrs increased Mg, Fe and Cu contents but Zn content recorded a decrease. Differences between treatments for all the parameters considered in the study were significant (P < 0.01).

  A fifty-six (56) days feeding trial was conducted in a completely randomized design to determine the haematological and serum biochemical characteristics of Hacco cocks fed Cocoabean Shell (CBS) supplemented with vitamin E and beta-glucan. Forty (40) cockerels (aged twenty-five weeks) were used. Treatment diets comprised T1 (control) (i.e. 0% CBS); T2 (20% CBS); T3 (20% CBS + Vitamin E) and T4 (20% CBS + Beta-glucan). The haematological parameters determined were Packed Cell Volume (PCV), haemoglobin concentration (Hb), Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) and White Blood Cell Count (WBC). Others included the WBC differential counts-polymorphs, lymphocytes, monocytes and eosinophils. The serum biochemical parameters determined were serum enzyme activities namely Spartate Amino Transferase (AST), Alanine Amino Trasferase (ALT) and alkaline phosphatase. Other parameters were total protein albumin, globulin and cholesterol. Treatment had significant (p<0.05) effect on PCV, RBC, WBC and polymorphs, while Hb, lymphocytes, monocytes and eosinophils were not significantly (p>0.05) affected by the treatment. Cocks that were fed CBS and CBS + Beta-glucan had similar PCV, RBC and WBC and polymorphs with the control group, while those that were fed CBS + vitamin E had lower values for PCV, RBC and polymorphs than the control group. The groups fed CBS + vitamin E had higher (p<0.05) WBC values than other groups. All the serum parameters determined were not significantly affected by dietary treatment. It was concluded that 20% CBS in diets of cocks did not show adverse effect on the blood parameters of the cocks. When supplemented with β-glucan, there was no adverse effect either. However, when supplemented with vitamin E, some haematological parameters were adversely affected.
