A 56-day study was conducted to evaluate the
performance and economies of single and two-phase diets in broiler production.
A total of 72 day-old chicks were used for this study in a completely
randomized design experiment. Two treatments (Tl and T2) were used for the
experiment. TI (two-phase diet) comprised 2 diets - D, and Dy. D,A served as
starter feed which was fed for 4 weeks while D8 was the finisher feed and was
fed for the next 4 weeks. T2 comprised just one diet - De (single phase diet)
which served as both starter and finisher feed. Diets DA had a crude protein
content of 23.26%; metabolizable energy of 2981.11 kcal/kg; D contained 21.2%
crude protein; metabolizable energy (3007.71 kcal/kg) and diet C (De) had a
crude protein content of 22.24%; metabolizable energy (2994.43 kcal/kg). Feed
intake were calculated daily and average weight gain taken at the end of the
week. Each of the two treatments had 3 replicates of 12 birds each. The
performance of both groups of birds were statistically analyzed using the
Students T-test. The two-phase starter diet performed significantly (P<0.05)
better than the single diet in body weight gain and consumed more feed in the
first week of the study ·but T2 converted feed better (P<0.05) than TI.
There was no influence on the birds by the diets in the 2° and 3° weeks of the
study. Feed intake of birds on the two-phase diet was significantly (P
