Performance Characteristics of Starter Broiler Chicks Fed Dietary Sun-Dried Sweet Orange Peel Meal (SOPM) with and Without Polyzyme®

Sunmola, T .A., Tuleun, C. D. and Oluremi, O.I.A.

Abstract: The study was carried out to evaluate the performance characteristics of starter broiler chicks fed diet containing sun-dried sweet orange peel meal with and without polyzyme®. Fresh sweet orange peel was collected from sweet orange fruits retail sellers and was immediately sun-dried on concrete platforms to attain less than 12 % moisture. It was ground and mixed with other feed ingredients to produce six (6) experimental diets T1, T2, T3, T4, T5 and T6. Two hundred and sixteen (216) unsexed day-old Abor acer plus broiler chicks were randomly assigned to the six dietary treatments of 36 chicks each and 12 chicks per replicate. The experimental diets had 2 levels of Polyzyme® (0 % and 0.04 %) and 3 levels of sun-dried sweet orange peel meal (15 %, 20 % and 25 %) and the experimental was fitted into the completely randomized design. Chicks were fed these diets T1 - 15 % sun-dried sweet orange peel meal + 0 % polyzyme®, T2 - 20 % sun-dried sweet orange peel meal + 0 % polyzyme®, T3 - 25 % sun-dried sweet orange peel meal + 0 % polyzyme®, T4 - 15 % sun-dried sweet orange peel meal + 0.04 % polyzyme®, T5 - 20 % sun-dried sweet orange peel meal + 0.04 % polyzyme® and T6 - 25 % sun-dried sweet orange peel meal + 0.04 % polyzyme®. Broiler chicks fed 15 % dietary SOPM with and without polyzyme® had significantly (P<0.05) highest final weight, weight gain and feed intake. Experimental diets did not show significant effect (P>0.05) on dry matter, crude protein, crude fibre and nitrogen free extract digestibility. There was interaction between polyzyme® and sweet orange peel meal on nitrogen free extract at 15 % and 25 % which was influenced by polyzyme®.
