Targeted research study the effect of adding crushed seed of Celery (Apium graveolens) on blood traits & some immunological parameters of broiler roosters (Hubbard flex). Thirty roosters, Twenty-sex weeks age, were randomly divided into three equal groups. First group (control) fed on the standard provender along the experimental period (7 weeks), second & third groups (T1& T2) fed on standard provender supplemented with 2.5 & 5 kg/ton, respectively. At the end of experiment, blood samples were obtained from wing vein for estimation of white blood cells counts, differential leukocytes counts, phagocytic activity for neutrophils and monocytes. Total protein, globulin, Aspartate aminotransferase (AST), Alanine aminotransferase (ALT), Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) enzymes, IgG, IgA & IgM concentrations in blood serum were calculated. The result showed that crushed seed of Celery (Apium graveolens) supplementation in the two treated groups caused a significant increase (P<0.05) in white blood cells counts, Lymphocytes, Monocytes & Phagocytic activity when compared with control group. At the same time, the result of total protein & globulin showed a significant increase (P<0.05) in two treated groups compared with control. The result of (AST, ALT &ALP) enzymes showed a significant decrease (P<0.05) in two treated groups compared with control. At the same time, the result of IgG & IgA concentrations showed a significant increase (P<0.05) in the both T1 and T2 groups compared with control.
