ABSTRACT:

The feeding value of heat-treated soybean and pigeon pea rations were compared with a standard ration using one hundred and twenty point-oNay pullets. The performance of fayer on these diets were monitored tor 56 days. It-was observed that egg production, egg weight, feed intake and feed efficiency for egg production were poorest (P0.05) differences between the rations on Haugh Unit (albumen quality) and soell thickness. It was concluded that pigeon pea, unlike soybeari cannot alone supply the protein need for optimal layer performance.
