The study was carried out to assess the growth performance of broiler chicken fed on 30%-45% premium grade palm kernel cake (PKC) feed and the commercial feed. A total of 600 day-old broiler chicks were used to determine the efficiency of utilization PKC animal feed due to the high content of fibrous material. The chicks were randomly divided into four groups fed on commercial starter feed, commercial grower feed, 30% PKC starter animal feed and 45% PKC grower animal feed. The results revealed that the highest average body weight at 35 days was group A (commercial starter and grower feed) are 2005.37±376.20 g compared to group D (30% PKC starter and 45% PKC grower feed) with 1690.89±160.78 g. The best FCR showed in group A and B (30% PKC starter and commercial grower feed) with 1.4±0.16 and 1.4±0.34. In conclusion, the results showed that the inclusion of premium grade PKC at 30%-45% into broiler feed shows promising potential as feed source of energy and protein on broiler chicken.
