Feed - Protein %age 20.7 but no weight gain


I formulated a broiler feed and there is 20.78% protein content in it.

The ingredients are as follows;

Corn 11.5%
Millet 5%
Wheat 8.25%
Flaxseed Cake 7.5%
Canola Cake 10%
Sesame Cake 7.5%
Calcium Carbonate 0.125%
DCP 0.125%
Amino Acids 50 grams per 100 kg (Choline Chloride, DL-Mehtionine, L-Lysine)

The Analysis report is as follows;

Moisture 9.05%
Crude Protein 20.78%
Ether extract 6.91%
Crude Fiber 4.24%
Crude Ash 6.62%

The bird is not putting up weight. Please guide me is there any mistake or addition requirement in this formulation. I will be grateful.
