Abstract:
The present study entitled “Effect of combined feeding of cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) and black cumin (Nigella sativa) powder on proximate composition and carcass characteristics of broiler chicken” was conducted from June to July 2022 at Poultry farm of Animal Husbandry and Dairy Science section, College of Agriculture, Dhule (Maharashtra). One hundred broiler chicks were reared on a deep litter system for 42 days. Chicks were randomly distributed into four groups (i.e., 25 chicks in each group) with 4 treatment blocks and five replications. The control group (T0) was without any dietary treatment, while combination of Cinnamon (CN) and Black cumin seed (BCS) powder was added in the experimental diets at the concentrations 0.30%, 0.75% and 1.0% each, for treatments T1, T2 and T3, respectively. The results showed that the proximate composition of thigh meat showed a statistically significant difference in crude protein and crude fat among the different treatments. Whether moisture, dry matter, ash and nitrogen-free extract showed non-significant results between the treatments and the carcass characteristics data indicated non-significant differences among different treatments regarding dressing percentage, cut-up parts like breast, giblet, drumstick and thigh percentage also edible and non-edible percentage. The proximate composition of breast meat has shown that there were no significant differences among the treatments for moisture, dry matter, ash, crude protein, crude fat and nitrogen-free extract at 42 days of age.
