Abstract: The study was conducted in different small scale intensive commercial poultry farm in Chittagong. The aim of the study was to assess the effect of different commercially available feed on growth and feed conversation ratio of Cobb 500 broiler. Effect of two commercial feed (CP and Aga) was evaluated on four broiler farms. The management system of four farms was more or less same and considered as constant traits. Feed conversion ratio and live weight gain was observed on a period of 35 days at 7 days interval. Study shows there is no statistically significant variation due to feeding different trade feed. Average feed intake /bird at 5th week was 2655.8 gm and live weight gain is 1617.5 gm in the studied farm. The feed conversion ratio is highest of 1.56 at Mejbah poultry farm where lowest at 1.73 in Anower poultry farm. The total live weight gain significantly (p<0.05) increases at 4 to 5 weeks within the farm. However, within the farm Mejbah poultry fed with Agha branded feed performed highest feed conversion ratio and live weight gain.
