Comparative Ability to Tolerate Heat Between Thai Indigenous Chickens, Thai Indigenous Chickens Crossbred and Broilers by Using Plasma Glucose

W. Aengwanich

Abstract:
The effects of high environmental temperature on plasma glucose were determined for a comparison of the ability to tolerate heat between Thai indigenous chickens, Thai indigenous chickens crossbred and broilers. One kilogram of males and females from the three breeds were maintained at an environmental temperature at 26±2 and 38±2°C. Plasma glucose was investigated on day 1, 7, 14, 21 and 28 of experimental period. The results revealed the following information: the plasma glucose of chickens at the high environmental temperature was significantly higher than that of chickens at thermoneutral (p<0.05). The plasma glucose of the Thai indigenous chickens, Thai indigenous chicken crossbreds and broilers maintained in each temperature condition was not significantly different (p>0.05). This experiment showed that plasma glucose is not suitable to use to compare the ability to tolerate heat because both the breed and sex of the chicken influence plasma glucose.
