  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.

  An experiment was conducted to examine the effects of raw jack beans, bambara groundnut and benne seeds on performance characteristics, serum metabolites and weights of organs of exotic adult cockerels. Each of the raw legumes replaced full fat soybean meal at 25 and 50% levels, respectively. The experiment ran for 8 weeks. Feed intake, weight gain and feed conversion efficiency of birds fed with 25% and 50% raw jack beans, raw bambara groundnuts and raw benne seeds were significantly (p< 0.05) reduced, respectively. However, the reductions were marked in birds fed 50% raw jack beans. Significant (p< 0.05) correlations were obtained between feed intake and haemagglutinin (r = -0.68), trypsin inhibitor (r = - 0.58); Weight gain and haemagglutinin (r = - 0.76) , trypsin inhibitor (r = -0.83). Mortality was higher in birds fed 50% raw jack beans. Serum total protein, albumin and globulin were significantly (p< 0.05) elevated in birds fed raw benne seed-based diets, but reduced (p< 0.05) in those fed 25 and 50% raw jack beans and bambara groundnuts, respectively. Weights of livers and testes were significantly (p< 0.05) reduced in birds fed raw jack beans, raw bambara groundnuts and raw benne seeds, respectively. Pancreatic enlargement was however observed only in birds fed raw jack beans and bambara groundnuts, respectively.
