            This study was conducted to determine the effectivity of avocado (Persiaamericana) as feed supplement in increasing the weight of broilers.

The avocado seeds were collected from different juice and shake vendors of Solano, Nueva Vizcaya. The drying of avocado seeds was done at Biology Laboratory of Aldersgate College. Feeding and observation of the broilers for forty two days (42) was done at Brgy. Quezon, Solano, Nueva Vizcaya.

There were three treatments in this study, each treatment consists of three broilers and they were fed according to treatments. The three treatments were as follows: treatment 1 (100% of avocado seed); treatment 2 (50% avocado seeds and 50% commercial feeds) and treatment 3 (100% commercial feeds).

Different rations were given three times a day for 42 days. Clean water was provided to broilers daily. The weight of the broilers was recorded weekly. In describing the experimental data, the mean was used in computing the difference between the initial and final weight of the broilers.

The researchers therefore conclude that the avocado seeds are effective in increasing the weight of broilers.

The null hypothesis stating that the treatment conducted which is not significantly different is rejected. This further implies that the three treatments conducted significantly differ from each other.
