Abstract:

A biological trial was conducted to study the effect of supplementing various levels of in Raja II Broilers on growth performance, carcass characteristics and survivability parameters were studied 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 treatments: 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 significant difference in body weight, feed intake and feed conversion ratio. Inulin also exhibited significant (P≤0.05) reduction in abdominal fat percentage. Other parameters viz., dressing per cent, giblets weights and survivability were unaffected by inulin supplementation. The results indicated that inulin have a better effect on growth performance, abdominal fat percentage.
