  An experiment was carried out to investigate the effect of substituting synthetic methionine with sodium sulphate and sodium sulphite in maize-soyabean diets fed to broiler chicks on weight and haematological profile. Two hundred and forty (240) unsexed Hubbard day old broiler chicks were fed iso-caloric and iso-nitrogenous maize-soyabean diets (3,000 cal/kg and 22% crude protein) for four weeks. There were eight treatment groups, T1-T8, each replicated three times. T1 had no methionine, T2 had 3% methionine, T3 had 3% sodium sulphate, T4 had 3% sodium sulphite, T5 had 1.5% methionine and 1.5% sodium sulphate, T6 had 1.5% methionine and 1.5% sodium sulphate T7 had 1.5% methionine and 1.5% sodium sulphite while T8 had 1.5% methionine and 1% sodium sulphite. Chicks in T6 had the highest average weekly weight gain of 106.58 g while birds in T8 had the lowest average weekly weight gain (79.94 g). The average weekly weight gain of birds in T1, T2 and T5 did not differ significantly (p>0.05) from one another. Likewise the average weekly weight gain of birds in T1, T2, T3 T4 and T5 did not differ significantly (p>0.05) from one another. The average weekly weight gain of chicks in T7 and T8 which had the lowest weight gains, also did not differ significantly (p>0.05). All haematological parameters evaluated fell within safe precincts as stipulated in literature. Treatment 6 is therefore recommended for broiler starter rations alongside T2 and T5 because they did not differ significantly (p>0.05) from one another.

  This study was designed to evaluate the nutritive value of powdered seeds of two important medicinal plants in West Africa. The proximate analysis of these two set of seeds were carried out prior to bird’s treatment so as to throw more light on their nutritional potential. A total of 18 broiler chicks of Anak 2000 strain were used in this study. Treatment one (control) received 0% inclusion of these seeds whereas treatment two and three received 10% Aframomum melegueta and Garcinia kola seeds respectively. The treatment was terminated after 5 weeks and live body mass of birds taken. The result obtained showed a non-significant (p>0.05) reduction in the body mass of broiler chicks reflecting their poor proximate composition. This finding may be an indication that these seeds should not be used as non-conventional feed source for poultry production. It however lends credence to their medicinal uses without compromising the body mass of birds.
