This research was conducted at the Faculty of Sustainable Agriculture, University Malaysia Sabah, Sandakan Campus to investigate the digestibility of crude protein of cricket and soybean by broiler. The objective of the study is to reduce the cost of importing raw materials such as fishmeal and soybean meal from other countries by replacing it with alternative insect that is cricket. Digestibility trial of these two samples were carried out to determine the percent of digestible protein and were then analysed using a-tN Analyser. Dry matter in ileum, dry matter in samples, Protein in ileum, protein in samples and the digestibility of samples were evaluated as parameter. Based on this research the average amount of protein found in cricket was 50.44% whereas 44.36% for soybean. Total protein found in ileum for cricket was 32.84% and 26.96% for soybean. The percent of digestible protein in cricket was 84.39% and 84.4% for soybean. Dry matter content found in cricket was 84.02% and 81.18% for soybean. Dry matter found in ileum for cricket was 86% and 84.4% for soybean. This research was conducted using Complete Randomized Design {CRD) with a factorial combination arrangement of two treatments with 3 replications.
