Abstract:

The 140 day old ‘Vencob-400’ chicks, which were divided into seven treatment groups with four replicates per group (Five chicks per replicate) i.e. 20 chicks per treatment groups. Dietary treatments consisted of basal diet T0 (Control), T1, T2 and T3 with T4, T5 and T6consist of 1, 2 and 3 per cent cinnamon while 1, 2 and 3 per cent ginger, respectively. Body weight and feed consumption were recorded at weekly interval. Feed conversion ratio, dressing percentage, economics of broiler production were calculated. Cinnamon and ginger feeding were done separately and compared by completely randomized design (CRD). The body weight of the 2.0% (T2) cinnamon and 1% ginger (T4) group was significantly (P≤0.05) higher than the other groups. The average feed consumption was significantly highest (3966.85 g/b) in control group and lowest (3793.30 ± 05.94 g/b) in 2.0% cinnamon (T2) supplemented group. No mortality was observed entire experiment. Highest profit per bird was observed in T4 (Rs. 24.17) followed by T2 (21.15), T1 (18.27) and other treatments while lowest in T3 (8.47).Similarly highest cost benefit ratio was found in T4 supplemented with 1% ginger powder followed by T2, T1, T5, T0, T3 and T6. From the result of present study it was concluded that dietary inclusion of 2.0 % cinnamon and 1.0 % ginger can be used as growth promoters for more profit per bird.
