Abstract: Potato meal (PM) is used as a source of dietary carbohydrate substitution with maize in broiler chicken. One hundred and twenty Ross-308 unsexed day old broiler chicks were used in a 28-day trial to investigate the effects of different levels of PM on productive performance and carcass characteristics in commercial broiler. Birds were randomly distributed into four dietary treatment groups designated as T0, T1, T2, and T3 which were supplemented with 0, 20, 30, and 40% PM for T0, T1, T2 and T3 treatment groups, respectively. The results showed that there were no significant differences in feed conversion ratio, survivability rate and dressing percentage among the treatment groups of broiler up to 40 % of maize with potato. Results also show that fat percentage is less in potato meal based diets which could be beneficial for human health. This results suggest that potato meal might be included up to 40% as substitute of maize in broiler diet without having any negative effects. It can be assuped that the findings of this study come significantly contribute to the country where the maize production is not as large as that of potato.
