Chicks were randomly distributed to four experimental treatments (3 replicates for each treatment and 10 chicks for each replicates) ,first treatment was a control while the three other treatments were contains 1, 2 and 3% of fermented wheat bran respectively. Results showed a significant effect )P≤0.05) of treatments on live body weight. The least value was in T3 namely 1820 gm while the highest live body weight was in T2 namely 1933 gm. Significant effect )P≤0.05) of treatment total feed conception which improved in 35 days of age in T2 and T4. The results also showed no significant effects of treatments no mortality rate, PCV and Hb rate in 35 day of age.
