An experiment on 240 day old broiler chicks was conducted to study the effect of enzymes (cellulase & xylanase) on the broiler rations having varying levels of canola meal and cotton seed meal. The chicks were divided into 24 experimental units of 10 chicks each. Eight broiler starter and finisher isonitrogenous and isocaloric rations A, B, C, D, A plus, B plus, C plus and D plus containing 6, 8, 10 and 12 percent each of canola meal and cottonseed meal without or with enzyme addition at a rate of II/100 kg feed were prepared. The enzyme significantly improved weight gain, and feed conversion ratio but had no effect on feed consumption. The economics showed that "A plus ration" having 6 percent each of canola meal and cotton seed meal with enzyme was best due to better growth and feed conversion ratio.
