Abstract:

The biological experiment was carried out to determine the carcass characteristics and physico-chemical properties of broiler chicken meat as influenced by Triphala supplementation in broilers. The study was carried out with three hundred commercial sexed, one day-old, broiler chicks that were randomly grouped into six treatments with five replicates for each treatment containing ten chicks per replicate. The chicks were reared from day-old to thirty five days of age in deep litter system under standard management conditions throughout the experimental period. The treatment groups were fed with basal diet without supplementation of antibiotic growth promoter/Triphala (T1) or with supplementation of oxytetracycline at 0.004 per cent (T2), or with supplementation of Triphala at 0.025 per cent (T3), 0.05 per cent (T4), 0.075 per cent (T5) or 0.10 per cent (T6). At the end of the experiment (35th day), one male and one female bird per replicate, totally ten birds per treatment group were randomly selected. Blood samples were collected for immunological and serum lipid profile study. The experiment revealed that there were no significant difference in carcass characteristics viz. eviscerated yield, yield of gizzard, heart and abdominal fat, except liver weight, in which  it was found to be significantly (P<0.01) highest in group supplemented with Triphala at 0.10 per cent (T6) and lowest in control (T1). There existed no significant differences among treatment groups in physico-chemical properties of breast meat of broiler chicken due to supplementation of graded levels of Triphala for a period of five weeks.
