Effect of empty pea pods incorporated diet on the performance of broiler chicks



Effect of empty pea pods incorporated diet on the performance of broiler chicks



Indian Journal of Poultry Science 34(2): 259-261



A total of 180 Babcock broiler chicks were divided into 9 groups and fed different levels of either green, meal and silage pea pods. Broilers fed pea pod silage showed the highest liveweight gain at the end of the 8-week experiment. But the cost/kg liveweight gain was slightly higher in the silage-fed group than the two other groups. However, feed conversion efficiency was greater in the groups fed either silage or meal forms of pea pod.
