Influence of two varieties of peas and faba bean on performance was observed in grow experiment. Varieties of legumes were different in antinutritive factors levels. ZEKON (peas) and MISTRAL (faba bean) are low tannin varieties, GOTIK (peas) and MERKUR (faba bean) are traditional varieties with high level of antinutritive substances. Experiment was finished in 40 days of age. There were used 900 broilers allotted to 9 groups (100 animals in group). Peas and faba bean was dose to feed mixture on level adequate to 30 g of crude protein per kilogram of feed mixture, the rest of crude protein needed in feed mixture was covered by soya bean meal. The best results in final weight achieved group with GOTIK (2476.7 ± 270.8 g), the second was group ZEKON (2456.7 ± 247.2 g), than MISTRAL in combination with peas (2454.7 ± 268.5 g), MERKUR (2416.9 ± 266.1 g), ZEKON in combination with faba bean (2410,7 ± 297.8 g) and MISTRAL group achieved 2405.6 ± 336.4 g of final weight. The rest of groups was belong 2400 g of body weight: control group 2370.1 ± 249.2 g, GOTIK in combination with peas 2302.9 ± 253.1 g and the worst result had group MERKUR in combination with peas (2258.8 ± 259.4 g). The differences were significant.
