Feed cost represents 60 80% of the total cost of rabbit production. Twenty seven (27) female grower rabbits of mixed breeds aged 10 weeks with weight range of 853.33g to 866.67g were used for this study. The animals were divided on weight equalisation into three treatment groups consisting of three inclusion levels of acha grains (0%, 50%, 100%). Data were collected on growth performance and nutrient digestibility. This study was conducted for a period of 70 days. Data were subjected to one way… Expand
