Abstract:
Due to the high cost of animal feeds, researchers are concentrating their efforts on unconventional feed sources. A total of 72 female Uttara chicks were distributed into six groups, each of which had three replicates with four chicks each. Birds were fed T0 (control diet), T1 (Basal diet + 1% Arjuna bark powder + 1% Sahjan leaf powder), T2 (Basal diet + 1% Arjuna + 2% Sahjan), T3 (Basal diet + 1% Arjuna + 3% Sahjan), T4 (Basal diet + 1% Arjuna + 4% Sahjan) and T5 (Basal diet + 1% Arjuna + 5% Sahjan). At 20 and 52 weeks, Hb and PCV were significantly greater (p<0.05) in the T1, T2 and T3. Six laying hens from each treatment were randomly chosen at the 20 and 52 week and blood was collected.At 52 weeks, the T1, T2, T3 groups had significantly increased TEC, MCH, and MCHC values (p<0.05). TLC and MCV readings did not differ significantly at 20 and 52 weeks of age. In T3, T2 and T1, there were substantial reduction (p<0.01) in serum glucose, total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, and atherogenic index. At 20 and 52 weeks, HDL-cholesterol, total protein, albumin, and the A/G ratio were greater (p<0.01) in T3 and T2. However, uric acid levels in T3, T2 and T1 at 52 weeks were considerably low (p<0.01). No discernible variation in globulin. Therefore, it can be concluded that chicken can be supplemented with Arjuna bark at 1% and Sahjan leaf powder at 3% for improved health without experiencing any negative effects.
