The treatment groups are made up of the control group T1, which was fed only the basic food, group T2, which fed 1% Ajwain seed powder as a supplement, group T3, which Fed 1% Coriander seed powder, group T4, which fed 1% Cumin seed powder, and group T5, which fed 1% Fennel seed powder as well as the basic feed. Broilers are reared for 35 days. After 35 days one bird per replicate is sacrificed to see the effect on carcass parameters. For examination of blood and serum parameters blood sample is collected on the day 21st and 35th of the trial. The supplementation of herbs and spices showed significantly (p<0.05%) higher effect on gizzard weight and no significant effect on dressed weight, eviscerated weight, heart, liver, giblet, spleen, drumstick, intestine length, pH and water holding capacity (WHC) have been observed.
