Depends on many factors including the nutrient profile of the actual ingredients used and the type and age of the broiler chicken.
Based on my calculations, using book values for the ingredients, you have a diet with:
2585 kcal/kg - recommended is 3180
17.2% crude protein - 18% is recommended
Calories to protein ratio - 150 - 177 is recommended
0.89% lysine - 1.11% is recommended
0.29% methionine - 0.45% is recommended
0.55% sulfur amino acids (methionine plus cysteine) - 0.86% is recommended
7.5% crude fat - not too bad though you have to watch for rancidity
4.6% crude fiber - a bit high but not too bad
1.95% calcium - 0.8% recommended
0.34% available phosphorus - 0.4% recommended

So the levels are not what are recommended for a commercial strain of cornish cross chickens in the final week or two before market.

As i said, though - it VERY much depends on the nutrient content of the actual ingredients that you use and it is not good to rely on book values.
