Abstract:

An experiment was conducted on the effects of Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-gracum.L) seed powder as a natural feed additive on performance, hematological parameters and serum constituents of broilers. Fenugeek seed powder was supplemnted standard broiler ration as a T1 (control), T2, T3 and T4 in the four different diets. Eighty, day-old broiler chicks were randomly divided into four equal groups having 20 chicks in each treatment and four replicate of 5 birds reared in deep litter system feed offered a standard broiler diet (T1) and fenugreek seed powder addition in the diet of broilers @ 0.5% (T2), 1.0% (T3) and 1.5% (T4) on dry matter basis by partial of control diet for 42 days. Fenugreek seed powder supplemeted (T4) 1.5 % highest live weight is observed (2636.12 g) in this group. Fenugreek seed powder at the 1.5% level significantly (P<0.05) improved the body weight, feed consumption but 1 % fenugreek seed powder improves hematological and serum profile of broilers. There was significant (P<0.05) hematological parameters WBC, Lymphocytes, Monocytes, MCH, MCHC in this parameters all values are increased as compare to control. But RBC, Hemoglobin decreses the value as compare to control group in fenugreek seed powder supplemented birds. However, non-significant (P>0.05) variation was observed in Granulocytes, PLT (platlet) values was increased but in MCV values are decresed as compare control group diet. There was significant (P<0.05) differences in seum profile observed in Glucose, HDL-Cholesterol values was incresed but decreased in Triglycerides as compare to control group, however, non singificant (P<0.05) observed Cholesterol values was decreased in 1 % supplemented group but LDL-Cholesterol, HDL-LDL ratio values were increased as compare to control group.The results from the present study, it could be concluded that the use of fenugreek seed powder as a feed additive at the level of 1 per cent as it improved the significantly hematolgical parameter and serum lipid profile.
