Abstract: A study on the use of millet as a partial replacement of poultry feeds on the growth and development of broiler chickens was conducted at Fadil and Fareed poultry farms Gombe-Nigeria. A total of twenty chickens were used for this research, ten were fed with starter/finisher with 0% millet for six weeks and the other ten were fed with starter/finisher mixed with 60% millet for six weeks, and at the end of each week their weight is been taken to monitor their growth and development . The result of this research revealed that the growth and development of all the chickens reared with both feeds (starter/finisher with 0% millet and starter/finisher mixed with 60% millet) was adequate although starter/finisher with 0% millet was found to be more effective in terms of faster growth and development of the chickens for a limited period of time compared to the starter/finisher mixed with 60% millet. The study recommend the continues use of starter for two weeks and finisher for the remaining weeks as the best type of feeding that would boost the growth and development of poultry chickens, The study also recommend the use of finisher mixed with 20% millet after feeding them for two weeks with starter alone, as against the use of starter for two weeks and finisher mixed with 60% millet for the remaining weeks in order to reduce the cost of rearing poultry chickens with starter and finisher.
