    The growth and haematological response of growing rabbits to diets containing Delonix regia seeds were studied for a period of 63 days. Forty (40) weaner rabbits with an average weight of 390-590 g obtained from College of Agriculture and Science Mando Kaduna State Nigeria, were assigned to eight dietary treatments containing Delonix regia seeds cooked at 100°C for 0,15,30,45,60,75 and 90 minutes respectively. The rabbit were assigned in such that their aged, sizes and group weights were balanced as much as possible. The animals were allowed to adjust to the test diets and cages for 7 days before the start of the experiment. During the period of acclimatization, the rabbits were dewormed with invermatin injection. Each of the treatments contained five (5) rabbits in a Completely Randomised Design (CRD). All cages were supplied feeders and drinkers. The .. Read More»
