Abstract:

An experiment which lasted for 84 days was carried out to investigate the growth performance, haematological and serum biochemical response of caged broiler to probiotics, garlic and neem leaf powder. Eighty day-old commercial broiler chickens were used for the experiment. There were six treatments including control, 4 sub groups with 3 chicks in each to serve as replications with variable proportions of (basal diet + probiotic @1 kg per ton of feed, basal diet + garlic @ 1 kg per ton of feed, basal diet + neem leaf @ 1 kg per ton feed, basal diet + probiotic + garlic @ 1kg per ton of feed, basal diet + probiotic + neem leaf @ 1 kg per ton of feed and basal diet + probiotic + garlic + neem leaf @ 1 kg per ton of feed). Combined supplements T6 basal diet + probiotic + garlic + neem leaf @ 1 kg per ton of feed gave the best performance (p < 0.05) in all growth performance traits – final body weight, weekly weight gain, weekly feed intake and feed conversion ratio and T0 the least. Administration of probiotics, garlic and neem leaf powder to broiler chickens increased their performance, boosted their immunity as well as improved their general well-being. It is, thus, recommended in broiler chicken production.
