Fig. 1.

Progressive change in percentage weight gain of rats fed Cajanus cajan supplemented diet. † All groups are significantly higher than control. All significant level at p < 0.05.

Fig. 2.

Progressive change in feed conversion ratio of rats fed Cajanus cajan supplemented diet. FCR is feed conversion ratio. ‡All significantly lower than control. All significant level at p < 0.05.

Fig. 3.

Progressive change in feed efficiency ratio of giant rats fed Cajanus cajan supplemented diet. FER = feed efficiency ratio. ***All the graded percentages of C. cajan were significantly higher than control.† All significant level at p < 0.05.
