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.

Effect of Supplementation Different Level of AL-jameed powder to the diet on some Productive and Physiological Performance of Broiler Chicken

journal of kerbala university, Volume 7, Issue 3, Pages 293-300

The experiment was conducted at the Poultry Farm ,College of Agriculture , University of Basra from 1/11/2011 to 5/12/2011, to study the effect of adding AL-Jameed powder to the diet on some productive and physiological parameter of broiler chickens. A total of 180 day- old chicks were randomly distributed to four dietary treatments of AL-Jameed 0 , 0.5 , 1 and 1.5 % . Each treatment contains three replicate (15 birds / pen ) . The results revealed that the addition of AL-Jameed to the diet resulted in significant increase (P<0.05) in live body weight , total weight gain as compared with the control group at 21 and 35 days . Results indicated that there was no significant differences in total feed intake between all treatments , but feed conversion ratio was significant (P<0.05) improved for the chickens that received 0.5 , 1 and 1.5 % AL-Jameed powder as compared with control groups. Chickens received AL-Jameed powder had significant increase (P<0.05) in red blood cells counts , hemoglobin and packed cell volume , but total white blood cells counts was significant decreased (P<0.05) in these treatments compared with control. There was a significant declined in cholesterol level at 35 days of age in the birds that were fed 0.5 , 1 and 1.5 % AL-Jameed meal as compared with the control , but no significant differences in glucose , total protein , albumen , globulin levels and the activity of GPT and GOT enzymes in blood serum. The groups treated by different levels of AL-Jameed showed a significant increase (P<0.05) villus height , reduced crypt depth and villus raised villus height / crypt depth ratio compared to control treatment . It could be concluded from the result of this study that supplementary AL-Jameed powder have a beneficial effect on productive and physiological parameters for broiler chicken
