Abstract: Twenty rabbits were used in a 12 week feeding trial to assess their performance when fed Hatchery Waste Meal (HWM) included in Growers Mash (GM) at 0, 15, 25 and 45% levels. They were randomly assigned to 5 treatments replicated four times each. Growers mash was used as the control diet (0%) and the inclusion levels were determined on the basis of 100 g that was given to the control group. Fifty gram of Centrosema pubescence was also given across treatments. Result showed a significant (p< 0.05) difference among treatment with respect to feed intake, while weight changes and feed conversion ratio showed no significant (p>0.05) differences among treatments. On the whole, it seems reasonable to postulate that HWM holds a great potential and as such could be used, as a feed ingredient in rabbit production, since it is capable of supporting production.
