Abstract

The influence on growth performance and digestibility of cocoa-pod husks mixed ration at either 100 or 300 g kg-1 was studied using growing French White rabbits. Except for feed consumption, results indicate there was no significant difference in final body weight, weight gain and feed conversion efficiency among rabbits receiving both levels of cocoa-pod husks in their rations. A slight decrease in energy digestibility, however, was observed when crude fiber contents increased, especially, in the ration incorporated with 300 g kg-1 cocoa-pods husks.
