Background: Haricot bean is one of Ethiopia’s most important legume grains. Beans are high in protein, carbs, and minerals, all of which are necessary for regular human function. Despite its nutritious value, it is difficult to digest due to anti-nutritional substances found in the bean.
Methods: For the trial, 168 Sasso strain broiler chicks with an initial body weight of 39.652.15g were employed. The chicks were divided into four treatments at random, with 14 birds per replication. Haricot bean was soaked in water for five hours at a 1 kilogramme to 5 litres ratio before being boiled for an hour to remove anti-nutritional elements. The bean was present in the treatment diets in proportions of 0, 10, 20, and 30% for T1, T2, T3, and T4, respectively.
T3 and T4 performed best (P0.05) in ultimate body weight, slaughter weight, dressed carcass, and eviscerated weight. With increasing the rate of processed haricot bean in the treatment diets, there was a substantial (P0.05) rise in white blood cell, red blood cell, haemoglobin, and packed cell volume. Conclusions: An integration of processed haricot beans in the broiler ration resulted in a positive overall performance and immunity of broiler chickens.
