The study was initiated to examine the effect of dietary supplementation of betaine hydrochloride (betaine HCl) on Serum bio chemistry in broiler chicken. The experimental feed was formulated according to BIS (1992) specifications and to the control ration (T1), feed grade betaine HCl at 250, 500, 750 ppm was added respectively to form different rations T2, T3 and T4 for different treatment groups. The birds in each group were maintained on their respective ration throughout the experimental period of six weeks. . Four birds from each treatment was randomly selected at six weeks of age to study the haematological parameters. All serum parameters were within the normal range for species. Supplementation of betaine HCl in different levels did not improve the serum calcium and inorganic phosphorus. The serum total protein and albumin level as well as serum uric acid were similar (P>0.05) in all treatment groups. There was significant decrease in serum lipid levels triglycerides (P< 0.01) and low density lipoproteins (P< 0.05) among treatment groups but serum total cholesterol, high density lipoproteins, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) were similar (P>0.05) in all treatment groups.
