The effect of calopogonium mucunoids leaf meal (CIVIEM) on I hr performance and haematological profile of broiler finisher birds was determined in a 28- day fee(ling trial. Four (lids containing CM EM at 0% (control) 5%, 7.5% and 10% levels respectively Were formulated afl(l fed to the birds in a completely m randomised design (CR1)). The broilers were (liVi(le(l in to lou r grou S of 1 5 birds each. Each group was subdivided into three ffplicflt('S of five birds each. Data on their body weight an(! ldc(I intake were collected. Al 8 weeks of age, blood was collected from 2 randomly selected bir(ls from each replicate in a treatment through their jugular vein with a syringe into an El Yl'A l)ottle for 1)100(1 analysis. 'l'he result of the ('xperinlellt showed that the 1)ir(IS Fed 7.5 and 10% CMLM diets were significantly different (P<0.05) and had higher live weight.
