This experiment was designed to evaluate different levels of Leucaena leucocephala leaves (LLL) which is treated by sun drying or soaked on small ruminant's performance. Leucaena leucocephala leaves were included in small ruminant diets at four levels; 8%, 16%, 24% and 32% respectively. Results revealed that the overall feed intake, body weight gain and feed conversion ratio were significantly (P < 0.05) affected by the dietary treatments. Concerning hematological parameters ESR, Hb and PCV% were within levels between species and condition was not significantly (P > 0.05) different as affected by levels of leaves inclusion. Plasma GOT, ALP and total protein were within levels of inclusion and condition of leaves in the two animal species were highly significantly (P < 0.05) different. Plasma albumin, globulin, Ca, Na and P as affected by condition, levels and species were not significantly (P > 0.05) different.
