The present work was achieved in order to evaluate the use of recovered frying oil in broilers diet and its effect on performance, carcass traits, meat quality and blood parameters. A total of 72 (one day old) Ross chicks were used in the experiment and divided into two groups. The chickens in the first group were fed the (control diet) containing fresh oil whereas the chickens in the second group were fed (treatment diet) containing recovered frying oil. The fatty acids profile, peroxide value and acidity value of the recovered oil indicated its suitability to be added to the diets. The experimental results indicated that the use of recovered oil instead of fresh oil in the chickens' diet did not cause any significant (P>0.05) alteration in their body weight, weight gain as well as their feed intake and feed conversion ratios. The meat quality, carcass characteristics and blood cholesterol and triglycerides were not affected significantly (p>0.05) by the use of recovered oil in the diets. The use of recovered oil in replacement of the fresh oil in broilers feed was shown to be more economically.
