INTRODUCTION Excess body fat deposition in broiler is now the concern of both producers and consumers. The fat represents as a waste to consumers who are concerned about nutritional and health aspects of their food. High body fat deposition in broiler chickens may represent an economic loss to producers, as it is inefficient in terms of energy metabolism and overall feed utilisation (Gaya et al., 2005). Moreover, obesity in birds increases the incidence of reproductive failure and death due to heart failure (Zubair and Leeson, 1996).
