Abstract:

The present experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of dietary supplementation of Ajwain on the hematological response and economical parameter/benefit cost ratio of Pratapdhan chickens. An experiment was conducted on 120 unsexed Pratapdhan chicks (day old) randomly design in 4 treatment groups with 3 replicates, each consisting of 10 chicks. Three treatment groups were as follows – T1: Basal diet as per BIS standards 2007; T2: Basal diet as per BIS standards 2007 supplemented with 0.1% Ajwain; T3: Basal diet as per BIS standards 2007 supplemented with 0.2% Ajwain; and T4: Basal diet as per BIS standards 2007 supplemented with 0.3% Ajwain. The chicks were kept under uniform managemental conditions on deep litter system from day 0 up to 8th weeks of age. Among the hematological parameters, Hb found highest in T3 (11.9 ±0.57) followed by T2 (11.47±0.38), T4 (11.37±0.21) and T1 (10.50±0.36), PCV found highest in T4 (40.45±0.11) followed by T3 (40.18±0.07), T2 (39.40±0.13) and T1 (37.63±0.54), TEC found better in T3 (11.9 ±0.57) followed by T2 (11.47±0.38), T4 (11.37±0.21) and T1 (2.0±0.36), TLC found better in T3 (28.02 ±0.03) followed by T4 (28.01±0.04), T2 (27.66±0.10) and T1 (26.08±0.06). The highest Benefit cost ratio (1.85) was observed in T3 groups followed by T2 (1.78), T1 (1.70), and T4 (1.67). On the basis of the result of the present study, it is concluded that dietary addition of Ajwain at the 0.2 % level was found beneficial in improving hematological profile. It can also be concluded that Ajwain can be used as efficient, effective and economical alternative to chemical growth promoters in poultry industry.
