Amel O. Bakhiet and Emtithal A. Ibrahim

Abstract:
The effect of diet containing 10% of Commiphora myrrha, 10% of Glycyrrhiza glabra or their mixture (5+5%) to Bovans-type chicks treated for 2 weeks was investigated. The body weight and weight gain of the two plants and their mixture were significantly depressed compared to the control chicks. Significant changes in the activities of AST and ALT and the concentration of total protein, uric acid, albumin and globulin and cholesterol levels. Mild degenerative changes were observed in the liver and kidneys of chicks while no significant differences were recorded in hematological parameters.
