Abstract:

The present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of combined administration of dietary ochratoxin (OA) and citrinin (CTN) at 2 ppm and 25 ppm respectively on performance traits and haematological profile of broiler chicks for a period of six weeks. Day-old male commercial broiler chicks (n=80; Vencobb strain) were selected to carry out the experimental study. Experimental design consists of four dietary groups which include control (Group –I), toxin (Group-II) and ameliorative groups (Groups III and IV). Clinically toxin group birds were dull and showed watery diarrhoea. Average body weights, feed consumption and feed conversion ratios were calculated at weekly interval of 14th, 28th and 42nd days of experiment and whole blood samples were collected to estimate haematological profile. The results of the present study revealed a significant (P<0.05) reduction in the average body weights, Haemoglobin (Hb %), Packed Cell Volume (PCV %) and Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC) of the toxin group birds. However, combined toxicity of OA+CTN had no effect of feed consumption and feed conversion ratio.
