  An evaluation of Distillers Dried Grains with Soluble (DDGS) as feed ingredients for broilers have been done. It is valuable source of energy, protein, water soluble vitamins and minerals in poultry diets. The present study was carried out during the summer season to study the impact of feeding graded levels of DDGS on broiler performance, hematological and histological parameters. A total number of 160-one day old, unsexed cobb broiler chicks were randomly divided into four groups. Birds of each group were subdivided into four replicates of ten birds each. The different experimental diets (Starter, grower and finisher) contain DDGS at levels of (0, 5, 10 and 15%). Diets were iso-caloric and iso-nitrogenous. Feed intake, body weight gain, feed conversion ratio, carcass characteristics were recorded. Values for pH and length of Gastrointestinal Tract (GIT), glucose concentration, hematological parameters (Hb, Ht% and H/L ratio) and histological study of small intestine, liver and pancreas were obtained. The result showed that DDGS insignificantly (p≤0.05) affected productive performance, carcass characteristic and Ht%, DDGS inclusion in the diet significantly (p≤0.05) decreased glucose concentration, H/L ratio and pH value and improved the histology of small intestine, liver and pancreas. This study concluded that the graded levels of DDGS up to 15% showed no adverse effects when used in broiler starter, grower and finisher diets on growth performance and carcass characteristics. The hematological and histological parameters were improved suggesting that DDGS can be used up to 15% in broiler diets.
