The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of iron requirement in growth performance in commercial broiler. A total forty five day old broiler chick of same hatch procured and randomly divided in to three groups. Battery type of cages system consists of three chickens in each to provide recommended floor space 0.75 ft in cages per broiler. T0 control (ration with out of supplement) T1 ration supplemented with 60mg iron, T2 ration supplemented with 80 mg iron T3 ration supplemented with 100mg iron T4 ration supplemented with 120mg iron. The mean body weight of chicks in different treatments T0, T1, T2, T3, and T4 were 48.0gm, 46.0gm, 45.33gm, 44.00gm, and 42.67gm respectively and they were non-significant effect. The mean feed intake of chicks during four week of age per broiler were T0 601.33gm, T1 600.03gm, T2 590.00, T3 540.03gm and T4 526.00gm.and the mean feed consumption ratio of broiler during the five week of age were T0 2098.93gm, T1 2090.38gm, T2 2072.35gm, T3 1985.03gm and T4 1400.32gm respectively they were non-significantly effect to each other.
