Abstract

A total of 120 day-old Abor Acre mixed sex broilers were used in a completely randomized design experiment to investigate the Influence of multi-enzyme supplementation on finisher broilers fed normal energy and protein level diet in south-east tropical zone of Nigeria. Each dietary treatment was replicated four (4) times with fifteen (15) birds per replicate. Multi-enzyme was supplemented at 1g/kg of experimental diet. Results showed that multi-enzyme supplementation to normal energy and protein broiler dietary levels decreased live weight, organ weights and carcass percentage weight. This suggested that supplementation of multi-enzyme to normal energy and protein starter to finisher broiler diets will negatively affect performance and should not be practiced.
