An experiment was conducted with 120. seven-dsy old Vencobb commercial broiler chick feeding adIbitum upo 42 duys of e on 4 different o-nrogenoI and iso-eneaetic diet formulated by replacing dietary sesaniL’ oil cake (SOC)by duckweed (DW) lo have its effect on perfonnasice of broilers. Live weight. leed conversion and profitability increased when sesame oil cake was partially replaced by duck weed Complete SOC replaced diet significantly reduced live weight gain, feed intake, feed conversion and prouitability. as compared with partial replacement O(SCC by cbackwced and SOC bscd control diet. Partial replacenwnt of SOC by DW did not affect survivability of broiler So at might be concluded that replacement of costly SOC partially b’ cheaper iincomeniional DW iii broalea diet resulted in increased pro(ilabihty Therefore. cheaper dtxk weed could be practiced n fonnulating economic balanced diet for broiler.
