Abstract: The present study was undertaken to estimate the variations in chemical composition of different broiler starter feeds produced by different feed companies in different areas of Chittagong, Bangladesh. Test results of one hundred four different broiler starter feed samples from different feed companies were collected and compiled in Poultry Research and Training Centre laboratory, Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Chittagong, Bangladesh during October 2014 to December 2016. Samples were analyzed in triplicate for dry matter (DM), crude protein (CP), crude fiber (CF), ether extract (EE), total ash (TA), calcium (Ca) and phosphorus (P) in the PRTC laboratory. Results indicated that, there were variations for different parameters in all the samples. DM content varied from 8.6 to 12.9 g/100g, CP varied from 18.7 to 25.5 g/100g, CF varied from 2.9 to 7.5 g/100g, EE varied from 5.0 to 8.1 g/100g, TA varied from 5.2 to 8.1g/100g, Ca varied from 0.7 to 3.2 g/100g and P varied from 0.4 to 1.0 g/100g. It was concluded that broiler starter feeds should be analyzed before supply to the birds.
