The objective of this study was to evaluate the physical profile of the broiler females fed with increasing levels (0, 3, 6, 9 and 12%) of raw soybean meal in the seven, 14, 21 and 42 days of life. A total of 250 one -day -old male broilers of the Cobb ®lineage were used, the experimental design being entirely random, with five treatments with five replicates containing 10 birds each. There was a significant linear effect ofsoybean inclusion levels in all evaluated periods. It was concluded that the inclusion of soybean yield levels negatively influences the broiler femur from one to 42 days.
