1. The effect of replacing 31 per cent of ground corn in a ration by 31 per cent of ground kalo was studied in a growth and body-analysis experiment with two lots of newly hatched chicks. 2. The amounts of feed consumed by all chicks of both lots were kept identical by hand-feeding equal amounts of the pelleted rations daily. 3. There were no significant differences in the growth rate or composition of the chicks at the end of a six weeks' feeding trial.
