Abstract:
The present study was planned and carried out to ascertain the efficiency of different levels of Garlic powder, Ashwagandha root powder and Shatavari root powder alone and in combination as alternatives to antibiotic growth promotors in broiler ration to improve the performance of broiler chicks. A feeding trial of 42 days was conducted using 300, day-old broiler chicks (Cobb-400) randomly distributed in completely randomized design. The broiler chicks were divided randomly into ten treatment groups with three replicates under each treatment. The T1 i.e. control group was fed on basal diet, while T2 was supplemented with Oxy tetra cycline (OTC) powder @ 0.1g/kg feed. T3 and T4 were served as Basal diet supplemented with Garlic powder @ 0.75% and @ 1.50%. T5 and T6 were served as Basal diet supplemented with Ashwagandha root powder @ 0.75% and @ 1.50%. T7 and T8 were served as Basal diet supplemented with Shatavari root powder @ 0.75% and @ 1.50%. T9 was served as Basal diet supplemented with Garlic powder @ 0.25%, Ashwagandha root powder @ 0.25% and Shatavari root powder @ 0.25%. T10 was served as Basal diet supplemented with Garlic powder @ 0.50%, Ashwagandha root powder @ 0.50% and Shatavari root powder @ 0.50%. The supplementation of Garlic powder, Ashwagandha root powder and Shatavari root powder alone and in combination had highly significant (P<0.01) effect was observed on Hb, PCV, TEC, TLC, Lymphocyte, Monocyte, heterophils, Eosinophil, Basophil, H/L ratio, albumin, globulin, total protein, A/G ratio, glucose, triglyceride, Cholesterol, AST, ALT, creatinine.
