AbstractThis experiment was conducted in Poultry Farm of College of Agriculture, University of Anbar during the period 15/2/2003 to 3/4/2003. This study aimed to determine the effect of adding different levels of oil and rape seed meal during grower and finisher periods on broiler performance and carcass quality .
Two hundred and seventy one day male broiler chicks ( Faobro CD line ) were used. All chicks were reared as one group till 21 day of age , after that the chicks distributed randomly to 9 treatments consists ( T1control, T2andT3rapeseed oil2.5 and 5% respectively, T4 and T5 rapeseed meal 6 and 12% respectively , T6- 2.5% oil and 6% meal, T7- 5% oil and 6% meal, T8- 5% oil and 12% meal, T9- 5% oil and 12% meal).
All chicks were fed starter ration till 21days then on grower ration for the period 22 – 35 days and then on finisher 36 – 49 days .
The results revealed as follow :
1- No significant differences were obtained in all treatments when added rape seed oil instead of corn oil during grower and finisher periods .
2- Added rape seed meal up to 12% showed no significant differences among treatments during grower and finisher periods .
3- Added rape seed oil 5% and 12% rape seed meal up to 35 days did n`t differed significantly among treatments .
