Abstract:

To investigate the effects of using different levels of turmeric powder on ileal morphology in laying hens, one hundred and forty four, 22-weeks old White Leghorn hens were divided into 6 treatments with 4 replications and each replicate had 6 birds. Control group (T1) was fed maize-soybean meal based diet without antibiotic while birds in T2 group were fed basal diet with antibiotic. In treatment groups T3, T4, T5 and T6 basal diet was supplemented with turmeric powder @ 0.25%, 0.50%, 0.75%, and 1% respectively. After 16 weeks of the experimental period, one bird from each replicate was slaughtered and ileal sample were collected for morphometric analysis. The mean values of villi length, villi width and crypt depth in ileum of hens were ranged 943.81 to 1148.20 microns (villi length), 192.42 to 213.29 microns (villi width), 184.65 to 213.79 microns (crypt depth) respectively. There was significant (P<0.05) increase in the mean values of villi length from 947.94 microns in control group T1 to 1145.77 microns in treatment group T6 fed highest level of turmeric powder (1.0%). Similarly there was significant (P<0.05) increase in villi width also from 194.78 microns in T1 to 213.29 microns in T6 (1.0 % turmeric powder). There was significant (P<0.05) increase in crypt depth from 189.32 microns in T1 to 213.79 microns in T6 (1.0 % turmeric powder). Thus, it can be concluded that dietary inclusion of turmeric powder reported a trend of improvement in villi length, villi width and crypt depth in gastrointestinal tract of hens.
