In order to evaluate using of Lathyrus sativa (LS), abundantly available in Ardebil province, as dietary for broiler a growth study was conducted. The samples of (LS) were prepared from Ardebil regions and analyzed with standard methods. The average of grain dry mater was 93.2 percent, gross energy was 4150 Kcal/Kg, crude protein, crude fat, crude fiber, ash, ca and p were 26.9, 1.35, 6, 4.5, 0.11 and 0.48 percent, respectively. All birds were fed ad libitum an experimental ration. The same management system was adopted for all birds, reared up to 42 day in 21 floor pens on poultry house. The experiment was carried out using factorial method (2×4) in a completely randomized design with four treatments and three replications. First factor was two levels of LS (raw and autoclaved), second factor was four levels of LS (0, 10, 20 and 30%) in diet of standard adjusted as NRC ,1994; and Ross 308 strain that fed to 1113 seven-day old broiler chicks. At the period of starter, ADG and FCR were reduced while at the period of growth ADG was not significantly affected at these levels (P<0.05) and ADG was increased between treatments autoclaved. Daily feed consumption, ADG and FCR were not significantly affected of raw and autoclaved LS treatments. In addition, body weight and the interaction effect between these two factor also were no significantly differenced (P<0.05). The results of the experiment showed that both raw and autoclaved are suitable alternative for soybean meal in broiler nutrition.
