Haematological Parameters of Broiler Chicks Fed Aspergillus niger - Fermented Terminalia catappa Seed Meal-Based Diet

  title={Haematological Parameters of Broiler Chicks Fed Aspergillus niger - Fermented Terminalia catappa Seed Meal-Based Diet},
  author={N. O. Muhammad and O. B. Oloyede},
The effect of Aspergillus niger-fermented Terminalia catappa seed meal-based diet on the haematological parameters of broiler chicks was studied. T. catappa seed meal was inoculated with A. niger spore suspension and incubated at room temperature for 3 weeks. Forty-five, day-old broiler chicks with an initial average weight of 30.25 ± 2.40 g were divided into three groups of fifteen animals each. The first group was placed on soybean-based (control) diet; the second group on raw (unfermented) T… Expand
