Abstract

An eight week feeding trial was conducted to assess the replacement value of instant noodle waste meal (INW) on the performance characteristic, carcass and haematological parameters of broiler chickens. Ninety, one-day old Anak 2000 chicks were randomly allocated to three treatment groups namely, diet 1 (0% INW), diet 2 (50% INW) and diet 3 (100% INW) in a completely randomized design (CRD). Each treatment group had three replicates of ten chicks each. The inclusion of instant noodle in the diet did not have significant (P>0.05) effect on the performance of the broiler chickens at both starter and finisher phases. The inclusion of instant noodle waste had no significant (P>0.05) effect on the carcass traits and organ weights in broiler chickens. No significant (P>0.05) effect was observed for the packed cell volume, hematocrit, haemoglobin, leucocytes, and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration among the treatments. However, mean corpuscular volume and mean corpuscular haemoglobin were significantly (P< 0.05) influenced by the instant noodles inclusion, in the diets. Based on the present results INW could replace maize fraction of the diet partially or wholly without any adverse effect on performance, carcass and health status of broiler chickens.
