Two hundred and forty day old commercial broiler chicks of uniform body weights were allotted to eight dietary treatments, in 4x2 factorial arrangements and offered ad libitum quantity of iso-nitrogenous (CP 23%) and iso-caloric (ME 2800 Kcal/Kg) diets containing four levels of Ajar seed meal incorporation (replacing maize at 0, 5, 10 and 15%) which were with or without Anizyme supplementation from 1 to 42 days of age. The percent carcass yields and livability of the birds were not significantly affected either by Ajar seed meal incorporation levels or by enzyme supplementation or by their interactions. The per cent of mortality in enzyme supplemented diets were lower (6.67%) compare to the un-supplemented diets (10.83%). It become evident from the study that ASM can be incorporated in the broiler diets replacing maize up to 15 per cent level without any adverse effect on live weight gain, carcass yield and mortality rate
