The study was conducted to assess the effect of inclusion of differen levels of (0, 1, 3 and 5%) of Moringa Oleifera powdered seeds in diet of broiler. About 160 unsexed, one day old chicks (Ross 310) were used. The birds were randomly divided into four equal groups, each with two replicates (32 birds/ replicate) in a completely randomized design. Four experimental raions were formulaed to be approximately iso-caloric and iso- nitrogenous to meet the nutrient requirement of broiler chicks. The feed and water were provided ad libitum, and feed intake and body weight gain were recorded weekly and the experiment lasted 6 weeks. Four birds were weighed and slaughtered to determine the dressing percentage. The obtained data was subjected to analysis of variance (ANOVA) using S.A.S (1996). The results showed that the inclusion of Moringa Oleifera powdered seeds in broiler diet significantly (P<0.05) increased the body weight and total feed intake. The treatments had significant effect on feed conversion ratio (FCR) and the best FCR (1.9) was observed for 5% level. The results indicated that inclusion of Moringa oleifera seeds had positive effect on chicks performance, it seems that Moringa oleifera seeds support the growth when added in broiler chicks ration.
