An investigation was made on 250 layers aged 55 weeks to assess the effect of herbal products on feed consumption, egg production and profitability. The experimental layers were randomly divided in five groups with 50birds in each and were housed in identical management and environmental conditions. Dietary treatments were prepared by addition of Standard layer ration (T1) (CTRL), AV/VSP/15 (M/s Ayurvet Ltd.) 200g/ton (T2), brand-A, 200 g/ton of feed (T3), brand-B, 200 g/ton of feed(T4), brand- C, 200 g/ton of feed(T5)in the basal diet. Feed intake, egg production and mortality were recorded throughout the observation period of 55 to 65 weeks. Feed per unit of egg production, hen day percentage, were calculated. The results obtained showed that the performance of T2 was better when compared to other groups in aspects of feed efficiency per dozen eggs produced, feed consumption, feed conversion ratio, keeping quality of egg and egg quality traits.
