An experiment was conducted with hundred and sixty, one day old unsexed broilers to investigate the effects of whey protein on growth performance and internal organs percentage. Four dietary treatments, each consisting of 4 replicates. Diets were control with 0% whey protein (diet A) and whey protein was added at 2, 4 and 6% (B, C and D respectively). Traits studied were feed consumption, weight gain, feed conversion ratio, internal organs percentage and dressing percentage. Results revealed that no differences were found in feed consumption, weight gain and dressing percentage among the four treatments, a lower feed conversion ratio was observed in week 5 with control group. There was no effect of whey protein on internal organs except the intestine, abdominal fat and gizzard percentages were significantly (P < 0.05) affected by the treatment. Chicks in treated groups reported high estimates of intestine and gizzard than control group. On the other hand, the lowest estimates of abdominal fat were observed by groups A and C. It concluded that up to 6% of whey protein can be incorporated in broilers ration because it‟s cheaper source of proteins and economically more profitable than control diet. The dietary whey protein seems acceptable and palatable to the birds.
