This research effect of feeding graded level of treated Jatropha seed to cockrel is aim to investigate whether there is significant difference between the level of Jatropha curcas as ingredient in cockerel feed and also to determine whether there is interaction between the ingredient and the treatment of Jatropha seed to cockrel. Analysis of variance technique was used to analyse the data collected, result of the analysis reveals that there is no interaction between the ingredient and the treatment Jatropha seed to cockrel and that there is significant difference between the levels of Jatropha curcas as ingredient in cockerel feed. It was concluded that Jatropha seed detoxification has to be looked into properly as the present series of treatment given to the seeds are not yielding a good result.
