Bangu Bekele, Sidrak Sintayehu

The experiment was conducted in Dilla sub research station poultry farm on egg quality analysis of Koekoek dual purpose chicken with feeding newly released sweet potato variety (Hawassa-83) leaf meal because Analyzing eggs quality is so important for both consumers and for coming new chicks to evaluate the effect of dietary supplementation of three levels (0%, 3% and 6% of dietary treatments) of sun-dried sweet potato (Hawassa-83) leaf meal on performance of egg quality that collected from Wondoget woreda area in Sidama region, that multiplied for demonstration purpose to different area by Hawassa agricultural research center. Eggs collected by three different phases (beginning, mid and pic of egg production period) and as results indicated, in all phases results were not significantly different (P>0.05) across dietary treatments. But there was no any adverse effect on chickens fed meals supplemented with dried and chopped sweet potato leaf either physical or production performance. Therefore, as a sweet potato being easily accessible or affordable, it is better to supplement this leaf with costly or commercial feed inputs as proteins or calories sources
