Abstract:

The present study was aimed to study the effect of dietary supplementation of ajwain on the performance of broiler chicken. Two hundred and twenty five one-day old unsexed broiler chicks were used on a completely randomized design in 5 groups with 3 replicates, each consisting of 15 broilers. The treatments included the control group (basal diet) and four groups with basal diet + ajwain powder @ 0.1% in feed, basal diet + ajwain powder @ 0.2% in feed and basal diet + ajwain seeds soaked in drinking water over nightly @ 0.1% and basal diet + ajwain seeds soaked in drinking water over nightly @ 0.2% respectively. Temperature and humidity of the shed were recorded daily to calculate Temperature Humidity Index (THI). Standard feeding and all other managemental practices were followed during the experimental period. The results obtained regarding performance of the broilers showed that no significant difference was observed in body weight and body weight gain. However, feed intake and feed conversion ratio between the groups treated by ajwain and the control group differ significantly (P<0.05). Through this experimentation it can be concluded that ajwain can act as effective alternative to AGP in broiler industry.
