The present study was designed to investigate the changes in haemato-biochemical profile of broiler chickens during administration of cow urine distillate (CUD). The cow urine distillate was prepared in the laboratory and was evaluated for its physical and chemical composition. Eighty, day old broiler chicks were randomly assigned into four groups with twenty birds each and were acclimatized for four days before the start of cow urine distillate supplementation. Control group T-1 was given drinking water without cow urine distillate, while groups T-2, T-3 and T-4 were provided drinking water mixed with cow urine distillate of Ongole, Sahiwal and Holstein Friesian (H.F) crossbred, respectively @10ml/liter. Six birds from each group were randomly selected and slaughtered on 28 th day and 42nd day of experiment. Blood samples were collected from the sacrificed birds and were analyzed for haematological and biochemical parameters. At the end of the experimental trial i.e. at 42nd day, the mean values of red blood cells (RBC), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) were significantly increased in cow urine distillate treated groups compared to control, while the serum biochemical parameters showed no significant difference between groups.
