Abstract:
To carry out the present investigation, 200 day old straight run, commercial broiler strain “VENCOB” chicks were procured from a commercial hatchery. These 200 chicks were divided in four groups, i.e. Group 1, 2, 3, 4, each group having 50 chicks. All the chicks from each group were divided equally to form 5 replicates of 10 chicks each in a completely randomized design (CRD).Water and starter diet for the four respective treatments were offered ad libitum. The four treatment groups were supplemented with neem leaf powder @ 0g, 1g, 2g and 3g/kg of broiler ration respectively. There was significant difference in water intake of birds among the treatment groups in all the weeks on the trial. The highest water was observed in T1 followed by T2, T0 and T3 groups in the whole experiment period. Average final live weight (kg/bird) and the daily weight gain gm/day/bird) were significantly higher in T3 followed by T1, T0 and T2 groups. The lowest FCR was found in the groups of T2 birds whereas the average daily water intake ml/bird was significantly higher in T1 followed by T0, T2 and T3.
