  The study examined effects of supplementing Roxazyme G® and Maxigrain® to wheat offal-, corn bran- and brewery dry grain-based diets on the performance, haematological parameters and economy of production in laying hens. Both enzymes were added to these 3 diets at 100 mg/kg, while control group was neither supplemented with Roxazyme G® nor Maxigrain®. The results showed that hens fed Roxazyme G® corn bran diets had the best feed conversion and maximum profit. Maxigrain® also significantly improved hen day production and egg weight of hens fed Brewery Dry Grain (BDG) than those fed Roxazyme G® BDG diet. Laying hens fed BDG diets had the lowest profits. Both enzymes failed to improve the performance and profits of hens fed Wheat Offal (WO) diet. Improvements in Red Blood Cells (RBC) for hens fed both enzyme supplemented diets were observed. Interactive effects of enzyme type and fibre source significantly (p<0.01) influence RBCs, PCV and white blood cells. The study revealed that Roxazyme G® and Maxigrain® should be added to respectively CB- and BDG- diets for improved laying performance. However, these enzymes failed to improve the laying performance of hens fed WO diet.

  Medicinal spices such as garlic and ginger contain chemical substances that could be used to enhance the value of food of animal origin. These substances such as organosulphur compounds of garlic and gingerone, shoagaols of ginger are responsible health benefits of these spices. The study investigated the addition of mixtures of garlic and ginger to diets of pullet chicks, growers and laying hens to evaluate beneficial effects on growth and egg production as well as their possible effects on lipid content of serum and yolk. Five diets were used for the study. Control diet was not supplemented with any of the mixtures. Four increasing levels of garlic (0.5%, 1.0%, 1.5% and 2.0%) were incorporated into diets for pullet chicks, growers and laying hens. Ginger supplements were also added to the diets at 0.5% and 0.75%. The results showed that the mixtures of garlic and ginger were beneficial by promoting final live weight of pullet growers, laying hens and also by lowering total cholesterol, triacylglycerol concentration in serum and yolk. Furthermore, the mixtures of garlic and ginger significantly (p<0.001) improved hen day production, egg weight and feed conversion. However, dietary inclusion of the mixtures significantly reduced shell weight and thickness. Significant (p<0.001) negative linear relationships were observed between dietary mixtures of garlic and ginger with parameters of serum and yolk lipids. In conclusion, the mixtures of garlic and ginger improved egg weight with lower cholesterol and triacylglycerol as well as better hen day production of laying hens. The results implied that the mixtures could benefit growth, laying performance and lowered yolk lipid content.

  One hundred day old broiler chicks were used for this study. They were fed on a conventional broiler starter feed for the first seven days after which they were randomly allotted into five treatment groups of twenty birds with ten birds per replicate. A seven week trial was conducted to investigate the nutritive value of Toasted Albizia lebbeck Seed Meal (TASM) on the birds. The test material was included at dietary levels of 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20%. At the end of the trial, three birds were randomly selected per replicate, starved overnight, bled through jugular vein, de-feathered and eviscerated. Average feed intake, weight gain, feed conversion efficiency and mortality showed significant (p<0.05) difference. However, at 0 and 5% dietary levels, there was no significant (p>0.05) difference in the performance characteristics. The carcass parameters showed that 0 and 5% TASM dietary levels were significantly (p<0.05) higher than other treatments in all the parameters assessed. The above showed that the birds were able to tolerate TASM up to 5% level of inclusion, but beyond this, overall performances, carcass characteristics and mortality were affected.

  Tapinanthus bangwensis (African Mistletoe), leaf meal was used as a replacement for GNC at 0, 5, 10 and 15% levels of inclusion in broiler diets. One hundred and twenty day-old (Anak strain) broiler chicks were used for the study which lasted for six weeks. Feed intake and body weight gain were determined weekly. The feed/gain and gain/feed ratios were also determined. At the end of the study five birds per treatment were randomly selected, starved and bled for blood samples to be used for haematological and serum chemistry. There was no significant difference (p>0.05) in feed intake, but there was (p<0.05) in body weight gain. Statistical analysis showed significant difference (p<0.05) in haemoglobin, PCV and RBC; but no significant difference (p>0.05) in WBC. The serum parameters showed no significant difference (p>0.05) among treatment means except in globulin. Treatment IV showed the least feed cost/kg feed. No mortality was recorded throughout the feeding trial.
