Effect of replacement of wheat by sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) on the performance of broiler chicks



Effect of replacement of wheat by sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) on the performance of broiler chicks



Bangladesh Journal of Animal Science 23(1/2): 75-80



Shaver Starbro broiler chickens, 1 day old, in 4 groups of 30 each were fed for 7 weeks on diets containing 40, 30, 20 or 0% wheat, 0, 10, 20 or 30% sweet potatoes, 6, 5, 5 or 4% wheat bran, 20, 20, 17 or 15% rice polishings, 10, 10, 11 or 12% soyabean, 13, 14, 14 or 15% til oilcake, 10, 10, 12 or 13% fish meal, 0.7% NaCl and 0.3% mineral-vitamin premix. Average liveweight gain was 1021.0, 938.3, 849.7 and 835.8 g, respectively. Feed:gain ratio was 4.61, 4.29, 4.66 and 4.74.
