Nutritive value of seeds of Samanea saman, or Rain Tree, of the family Fabaceae was determined. S. saman is also associated to the family acacia due to its close relations to its family. This type of acacia tree is seen widespread throughout the Philippines especially in Luzon. Studies showed that S. saman seeds contain nutritional requirements mainly carbohydrates, proteins, fats, fiber and calories [Hasan et al. 2007] of young Gallus domesticus (Chicks) that may contribute to the chick’s weight and height gain. Using 36 chicks in total divided amongst 2 replicate groups of the 4 test groups containing 3 chicks each. T0 was given only normal chick feeds and T1 was fed with 75% normal chick feeds with a mixture of 25% grinded S. saman seeds. T2 had 50% normal chick feeds mixed with 50% grinded S. saman seeds and T3 with 25% chick feeds with 75% grinded S. saman seed mixture. After the experiment duration of 30 days, generally, T0 resulted in the greatest weight and height gain followed by T1, T2 and T3 respectively. However, to the end of the experiment, T1, T2 and T3 had more or less the same differences in height and weight increase as T0. Using two-way ANOVA as the statistical treatment, results showed no significant difference between both height and weight increase of the test organisms fed with normal chick feeds and grinded S. saman seeds.
