Abstract:
The present study aimed to determine haemato-biochemical constituents and corticosterone level of synthetic coloured broiler male line affected with heat stress. We hypothesized that haemoglobin (Hb), Packed cell volume (PCV), total erythrocyte count (TEC), lymphocyte and eosinophil values were significantly higher in control whereas total leucocyte count (TLC), heterophil and basophil were significantly higher in heat stress group. Additionally, Heterophil/Lymphocyte (H/L) ratio in heat stress group was observed to be highly significant (p<0.01). Biochemical pictures depicted significantly higher (p<0.01) levels of glucose and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) in heat stress group as compared to control whereas values of total protein, albumin, globulin and alanine transaminase (ALT) were showing no significant difference between these two groups. When compared to the control group, the corticosterone level in the heat stress group was found to be greater (p<0.01).
