Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of Herbal immunomodulator powder and liquid form (with and without vaccine) comparing with Levamisole powder (with and without vaccine) on immune organ weights and immunological parameters in Giriraja birds. In a completely randomised design, 525 day old Giriraja chicks were assigned to seven treatments with each treatment group consisting of five replicates with 15 chicks each. The results of the present study found that the dietary supplementation group had non-significant difference in relative weights of Spleen, Bursa of Fabricicus among the various treatment groups and thymus exhibited significant difference in herbal immunomodulator powder supplemented group (T4 and T5) among themselves. Significant effect in antibody titer against NDV showed during 21st day of age, levamisole supplemented group (T2 and T3) and herbal immunomodulator powder supplemented group (T4 and T5) exhibited significant difference among themselves and herbal immunomodulator liquid supplemented group (T6 and T7) exhibited non- significant difference among themselves. The   non- significant difference during 56th day of age, the titer value against IBD showed significant difference during 56th day of age in treatment groups (T2, T6 and T7) and no significant difference on H: L ratio was observed.
