Abstract

Background and Objective: Groundnut seed cake and cotton seed cake are conventional ingredients to provide protein in poultry feed. Developing alternative protein sources for poultry nutrition will reduce the pressure on these key protein sources, as well as promote the development and sustainability of the poultry industry. The present experiment was carried out to evaluate the effect of different dietary levels of Roselle seed (Hibiscus sabdariffa) on broiler growth performance. Materials and Methods: One hundred and 28 days old unsexed hybrid broiler chicks were purchased from Ommat Commercial Company. Birds were distributed randomly into 16 pens (8/pen) as replicates, each treatment with 4 replicates in a complete randomized design. Four experimental diets were formulated with four levels of Roselle seed content of (0, 5, 10 and 15%). Feed and water were provided ad libitum. Feed intake, body weight was weekly recorded. Weight gain and feed conversion ratio (FCR) were calculated. Mortality was daily recorded. The experiment lasted for 42 days. Five birds from each treatment were randomly selected, weighed and slaughtered to determine carcass dressing percentage and internal organs weights. Results: Average feed intake by birds abating the experimental period were 3310, 2889, 3135 and 3145 g for treatments 0, 5, 10 and 15%, respectively. However, the increased body weight for the four treatments was 1413, 1338, 1333 and 1323 g, respectively. The conversion ratio for the four treatments was 2.20, 2.16, 2.39 and 2.41, respectively. The dressing percentage was 67.58, 67.23, 68.21 and 68.17, respectively. Conclusion: The results obtained showed that Roselle seeds can be used as the protein source in broiler diets up to 15% without any adverse effects.
