Abstract:

The effect of supplementation of garlic and nilavembu on haematological and biochemical parameters of commercial broiler chicken was studied in 300 commercial broiler for a period of six weeks. There were 5 treatment groups and each treatment had three replicates with 20 chicks. The treatment groups containing garlic and nilavembu at different levels, such as 0 g garlic + 0 g nilavembu (T1- control), 5 g garlic + 1 g nilavembu (T2), 10 g garlic + 1 g nilavembu (T3), 5 g garlic + 2 g nilavembu (T4) and 10 g garlic + 2 g nilavembu (T5) / kg of basal diet, respectively. WBC (x 103) count revealed a highly significant (P<0.01) difference between treatment groups. Similarly, birds in T5 group had significantly highest lymphocyte count and lowest cholesterol and triglyceride levels (P<0.01). Hence, it may be concluded that supplementation of garlic and nilavembu had positive effect on lowering cholesterol, triglyceride and enhance the immunity.
