Abstract: This study is presented to investigate the effects of different levels of Hatchery Wastes (HW) in broiler chickens diets. One hundred and eighty days old male chickens were in randomize complete design in to 5 groups and 3 replicates from of 7-56 days age, levels of 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8% fed HW in diets. The HW were controlled after processing (drying and eliminating the microbial load). Weight gain and feed intake were measured weekly and period in each replication. Results of the data showed the use of wastes until to the level of 4%, non significant difference in weight gain, feed intake and Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) between groups (in various period). Average carcass combination included were significant in breast weight% (p<0.05) and abdominal fat (p<0.01) in between groups and organoliptic quality of the grille breast meat was significant both in males and females (p<0.05). The glucose value of serum was significant in 5 and 8 weeks (p<0.01), but CHOL and TG value were only significant in eighth week (p<0.05). Results showed, we could use from the HW to 4% level after necessary processing in broiler diets.
