Abstract:

A biological trial was conducted to study the effect of supplementing various levels of inulin on immunity and lymphoid organs weight in Raja II broilers from 1 to 42 days of age. 225 day old straight run Raja II broiler chicks were selected randomly and out of this 45chicks were assigned randomly to each treatment: control (without inulin), control + 0.25 percent inulin (T2), control + 0.5 percent inulin (T3), control + 0.75 percent inulin (T4) and control +1 percent inulin (T5). The supplementation of various levels of inulin in broiler diets found effective in improving significantly antibody titre against IBDV, but not in NDV and also change in lymphoid organs weight. The results indicated that inulin have a better effect on antibody titre against IBD in broilers.
