  An eight week study was conducted to determine the nutritive value of Raw Breadfruit Meal (RBFM), Cooked Breadfruit Meal (CBFM) and Fermented Breadfruit Meal (FBFM) for the grower rabbit to increase their feed resources base and reduce cost of feeding. Breadfruit meals were included at 25% in the three diets except the control and the diets fed to four groups of fifteen rabbits in a completely randomized design. Data was collected on feed intake, weight gain, feed conversion ratio, digestibility, carcass and haematological characteristics. Results showed that weight gain of the rabbits that were fed control diet (15.4 g) was lower (p<0.05) than those fed FBFM (16.4 g) but higher than that of the group fed RBFM (12.8 g). Final weight, total weight gain, live weight, carcass weight and carcass yield followed similar trend. Feed consumed by the rabbits that were fed RBFM was lower (p<0.05) than that of the control, CBFM and FBFM diets. Rabbits that received RBFM also had lower (p<0.05) digestibility, Packed cell volume, Haemoglobin concentration, red blood cell counts and poor feed conversion than those fed other diets. Kidneys, pancreas and heart of the rabbits that were fed RBFM diet were larger (p<0.05) than those fed other diets. Cost/kilogram weight gain of the rabbits fed FBFM was lower than that of other diets. It was concluded that 25% FBFM can be included in grower rabbit diet to maximize growth and reduce production cost.

  Two hundred and fifty Isa-Brown point of lay chicken of 30 weeks of age were used to determine the effect of substituting westwood (Cirina forda) larva meal (WWLM) for fish meal which is the most expensive feed ingredient in layer diet on laying performance of chicken. The birds were fed five diets in which WWLM replaced 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100% fish meal. Data collected were feed intake, weight change, egg production, feed efficiency and egg quality characteristics Data were analyzed using one-way analysis of variance. Proximate analysis showed that WWLM contained higher crude protein, crude fibre, ether extract, dry matter and ash than fish meal. Feed intake and weight gain were not significantly (p<0.05) affected by diets. Hen day production of birds fed 0% WWLM (77.86%), 25% WWLM (78.32%), 50% WWLM (77.82%) and 75% WWLM (77.37%) were similar but higher (p<0.05) than that of those fed 100% WWLM (73.39%). Birds fed 0, 25, 50 and 75% WWLM were also comparable in terms of egg weight and efficiency of feed utilization while those fed 100%WWLM were inferior with respect to these parameters. Egg shell thickness, yolk colour and Haugh unit were not significantly different among treatments. It was concluded that WWLM can replace up to 75% fish meal in the diet of laying chicken.

  A fifty-six (56) days feeding trial was conducted in a completely randomized design to determine the haematological and serum biochemical characteristics of Hacco cocks fed Cocoabean Shell (CBS) supplemented with vitamin E and beta-glucan. Forty (40) cockerels (aged twenty-five weeks) were used. Treatment diets comprised T1 (control) (i.e. 0% CBS); T2 (20% CBS); T3 (20% CBS + Vitamin E) and T4 (20% CBS + Beta-glucan). The haematological parameters determined were Packed Cell Volume (PCV), haemoglobin concentration (Hb), Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) and White Blood Cell Count (WBC). Others included the WBC differential counts-polymorphs, lymphocytes, monocytes and eosinophils. The serum biochemical parameters determined were serum enzyme activities namely Spartate Amino Transferase (AST), Alanine Amino Trasferase (ALT) and alkaline phosphatase. Other parameters were total protein albumin, globulin and cholesterol. Treatment had significant (p<0.05) effect on PCV, RBC, WBC and polymorphs, while Hb, lymphocytes, monocytes and eosinophils were not significantly (p>0.05) affected by the treatment. Cocks that were fed CBS and CBS + Beta-glucan had similar PCV, RBC and WBC and polymorphs with the control group, while those that were fed CBS + vitamin E had lower values for PCV, RBC and polymorphs than the control group. The groups fed CBS + vitamin E had higher (p<0.05) WBC values than other groups. All the serum parameters determined were not significantly affected by dietary treatment. It was concluded that 20% CBS in diets of cocks did not show adverse effect on the blood parameters of the cocks. When supplemented with β-glucan, there was no adverse effect either. However, when supplemented with vitamin E, some haematological parameters were adversely affected.
