Crude lipid was determined by the Soxthlet method (AOAC, 1984), ash was determined by combusting dry samples in a muffle furnace at 550[degrees] for 12 h (AOAC, 1984), and the gross energy content of dry samples was determined with PARRI281 bomb calorimeter (PARR Instrument Company, USA).

Thus, the study was conducted to evaluate the effect of including cassava scraps in diets of broilers on performance (weight gain, feed intake and feed conversion) and on feasibility of broilers production, and also to evaluate dry matter metabolizability (DM), crude protein (CP) and gross energy (GE), from 1 to 21 days of age.
However, as the diet with higher protein level also presented around 7% higher gross energy, it is not possible to exclude that dietary energy may also contribute to this variation.
