Effect Of Graded Levels Of Moringa Oleifera Leaf Meal On Performance And Serum Biochemical Parameters Of Broiler Chickens
Ninety-six (96) CHI broiler chickens aged 4 weeks were used to determine the effect of Moringa oleifera leaf meal (MOLM) on growth performance and serum biochemical parameters. The 96 broiler chickens were randomly allocated to 4 treatment groups, identified as T1, T2, T3 and T4. Each treatment group consisted of 24 birds replicated 3 times with 8 birds per...
