Samples of chicken feed and rabbit feed were analysed for its protein profile, protein content, moisture content, fat content and mineral composition such as potassium and calcium. The results showed that chicken feed have 8.41% of fat content, 12.84% of moisture content, 21.52% protein content, 15.6 mg/100g calcium and 17.35 mg/100g potassium. While rabbit feed have 6.63% of fat content, 10.76% of moisture content, 17.62% of protein content and 11.8 mg/100g calcium and 30.51 mg/100g potassium. The protein profiles of chicken and rabbit feed showed that there were more hydrophobic amino acids present because of the greater amount of absorption at the earlier retention time. Comparison of lysine amino acids in chicken feed and rabbit feed indicated lysine was present in chicken feed but absent in rabbit feed. The moisture content of rabbit feed and chicken feed based on dry weight are naturally low due the main ingredient.
