     This experiment was conducted in order to determine the effects of corn gluten feed (CGF) on performance and carcass characteristics of broiler chicks. Four hundred commercial Cobb 500 broiler chicks were fed with 4 dietary treatments consisted of a control treatment (without CGF) and treatments containing 5, 15 and 20% CGF in the starter period and 10, 25 and 30% CGF in the grower periods, respectively. Five replicates of 20 chicks were allocated to each treatment. Results showed that utilization of CGF up to 20% in starter and 30% in grower periods had not adverse effect on body weight gain, feed intake and feed conversion ratio of broiler chicks. There was not any significant difference among treatments for carcass characteristics such as edible carcass, drumstick and breast. Based on the results of this experiment, CGF can be used in broiler diets up to 20% in the starter and 30% in the grower periods without any adverse effect on performance and carcass characteristics.
