Abstract

Raw expeller pressed karanj seed cake (EKC) @10% incorporated in broiler chicken ration by quantitatively replacing soyabean meal and studied the performance and haemato-biochemical changes. Day-old broiler chicks (Vencobb strain) were divided into five groups of 18 chicks each with various combinations of EKC, methionine and activated charcoal as group I: control feed (CF), group II: CF + EKC @ 10%, group III: CF + EKC @ 10% + methionine @ 0.2%, group IV: CF + EKC @ 10% + activated charcoal @ 0.1% and group V: CF + EKC @ 10% + methionine @ 0.2% + activated charcoal @ 0.1% for a period of 6 weeks. The results revealed reduced body weight gains, feed intake, increased feed conversion ratio and significant (P< 0.05) reduction in mean values of Hb, PCV, TEC, TLC, glucose, total protein, albumin and globulin levels and significant (P< 0.05) increase in the total cholesterol, creatinine and AST levels in EKC fed group in comparison to control group. The amelioration groups revealed improvement in performance and haemato-biochemical values in respect to EKC fed group.
