Abstract: The study was conducted to observe the productive performance of broiler replacing vegetable oil by maize in different level. The experiment was designed by two treatment groups and each treatment having three replications consist of 25 birds in each replication. Two rations were formulated using locally available ingredients where T0 was formulated with maize (without oils) and T1 with palm oil (oil group). The body weight of broiler feeding maize at 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th weeks are 117.67 g, 271 g, 631.17 g, 1055.28 g and 1572.81 g while feeding palm oil these are 120.43, 267.84, 641.00, 1072.99 and 1587.69 which differ significantly (P<0.01) with former to later one. The weekly average feed intake of broiler with maize from 1st week of to 5th week are 79.46 g, 221.51 g, 553.04 g, 750.20 g and 1079.00 g differed significantly (P<0.01) with feeding palm oil which are 81.58 g, 222.56 g, 635.86 g, 750.59 g and 1094.67 g. Similarly the FCR of feeding maize birds are 1.10, 1.13, 1.43, 1.45 and 1.76 while birds with feeding palm oil are 1.05, 1.09, 1.37, 1.37 and 1.66 which also significantly (P<0.01) varied. Average mortality rate was 1% for T0, T1 group respectively. It is revealed that the performance of broiler feeding palm oil is significantly better than maize feeding birds. So, it may be concluded that the commercial rearing of broiler feeding palm oil is more profitable than without oil.
