Abstract:

Different strategies are being followed to enhance the body growth and economize the poultry feed. Use of peppermint powder is one such approach. This research work consisted of a total number of 160 day-old broiler chickens (Gallus gallusdomesticus) of vencobb strain were taken and the experimental birds divided into 4 treatment groups viz. T1 (control), T2, T3 and T4 with two replicate in each treatment group, having 20 broiler chickens in every replicate in a complete randomized design. Birds supplemented with peppermint leaf powder showed higher body weight and FCR as compared to control group. The birds supplemented with 0.5% of peppermint leaf powder had the best FCR and was found to be economical.
