Abstract:

The experimental trial was conducted to study the effect of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-gracum L.) seed powder as natural feed additive on growth performance, feed consumption and feed conversion ratio of broiler chicken. Study was conducted for six weeks eighty, day old, broiler chicks divided in four treatments of 20 chicks in each treatment with 4 replications of five chicks. The control (T1) group was fed with standard broiler ration and T2, T3 and T4 groups were provided same broiler ration supplemented with 0.5 per cent, 1 per cent and 1.5 per cent fenugreek seed powder, respectively. The result showed that 1.5% supplemented feed diet increses cumulative weight, weight gain, feed intake but 1% supplemented feed diet best feed conversion ratio (1.87) was recorded. It was concluded that 1% of (FSP) in broiler diets can be used as natural feed additive for enhancing growth performance, feed conversion of broilers.
