  Twenty crossbred rabbit of mixed breeds with average initial weights of between 823.7518.52 and 865.2519.46 g were used in a feeding that trial lasting for 8 weeks to evaluate the effect of feeding sun-dried cassava peel-blood meal mixture (SDCP/BM) based diet in a ratio of 3:2. The rabbits were randomly assigned to five treatments of four rabbits each in a completely randomized design experiment. The SDCP/BM mixture was included at 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20% levels. Performance characteristics evaluated included daily feed intake, weight gain, feed: gain ratio and some internal organs characteristics. The results showed that the performance characteristics of rabbits fed varying inclusion levels of SDCP/BM mixture compared favourably well (p>0.05) with the control diet. It was concluded that SDCP/BM mixture in the ratio of 3:2 can be included in the diets of rabbits up to 20% level.

  The effects of different inclusion levels of Garcinia kola on performance and egg quality parameters of layers were investigated for 8 weeks. A total of 40 Issa brown point-of-lay birds at 20 weeks of age were assigned randomly into 5 treatments, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 with 8 birds/treatment and 4 birds/replicate. Birds on each treatment were fed different diets containing Garcinia kola at 0 g/1000 g, 10 g/1000 g, 20 g/1000 g, 40 g/1000 g and 80 g/1000 g/kg weight of feed. The control diets did not contain Gracinia kola. The trial lasted for 8 weeks. There were no significant differences (p>0.05) in egg weight, yolk weight, yolk index, yolk length, yolk colour, yolk albumen ratio, shell weight, shell thickness and Haugh unit of the eggs. There were significant differences (p<0.05) in performances, albumen weight and yolk height. This study showed that Garcinia kola did not pose any deleterious effects to the birds even at 80 g/1000 g/kg inclusion level but performance and egg quality were best at 10 g/1000 g/kg of dietary inclusion.

  The effect of dried seed powered of bitter (Garcinia kola) on weekly feed intake, body weight gain, feed efficiency and carcass characteristics of broiler chicks of Anak strain were studied. Broiler chicks were assigned to 5 treatment groups of 40 birds each per group Replicated twice with 20 birds per replicate. They were fed diets containing 0, 2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10 g/100 g dry seed powder of G. kola. There were significant treatment differences (p<0.05), in feed intake, body weight gain and feed efficiency. Feed efficiency was highest in 0, 2.5 g/100 g and lowest in 5 and 7.5 g/100 g inclusion levels. There was no mortality throughout the trial in any of the treatment groups.
