Ninety six day old broiler chicks brooded and randomly allocated to four dietary treatments of 24 birds replicated into three groups with eight birds per replicate. Four experimental diets were formulated; the test ingredient is Gliricidiasepium leaf meal. Two of the diets were formulated without enzymes supplementation i.e diet A and diet B while the remaining two treatments were supplemented with Roxazyme (G2) and Maxigrain). Gliricidiasepium leaf meal was included at the level of 5% replacement of dietary soyabean meal in diets B, C and D. After eight weeks  datacollected were  feed intake, weight gain and body weight changes. Daily feed intake was more significantly (p<0.05) reduced in birds fed control diet. Highest(P<0.05) body weight gain(36.46g/d) and nutrients utilization was observed  inbirds fed  with Maxigrain (diet D) supplement (p<0.05). The best,even better than the control, improvement in the response indices were obtained in birds fed Maxigrain diet D. Hence forage Gliricidiasepium meal of 5% could be included with 0.10% Maxigrain.
