Abstract:
A growth experiment was conducted to study productive performance, carcass characteristics and some blood parameters of broiler chicks fed corn-soybean meal diets with 3 levels of Moringa oleifera leaves meal (MOLM) under heat stress conditions. Two hundred and eighty one day old chicks were randomly assigned to four treatments. The 1st treatment fed a commercial basal diet as a control, while, the other treatments 2, 3 and 4 were fed the commercial basal diet supplemented with MOLM (0.1, 0.2 and 0.3%, respectively). The results showed that body weight gain was increased significantly (p<0.05) as the level of MOLM increase; also, the feed intake had the same trend. Feed conversion ratio was recorded better values as the level of MOLM increase. The levels of MOLM had no significant effect on carcass relative weight, liver, gizzard, heart, abdominal fat, breast and thigh. Haemoglobin (Hb) was increased with increase the level of MOLM, while, haematocrit (Ht) values did not affect. Heterophil/Lymphocyte (H/L) ratio was decreased by increase the level of MOLM. Plasma total protein increased significantly (p<0.05) with increase the level of MOLM. Albumin did not affect while, globulin increased significantly (p<0.05) with increase the level of MOLM. AST decreased significantly (p<0.05) while, ALT did not affect with adding MOLM levels. Thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) were significantly (p<0.05) increased with increase MOLM level while, T3/T4 ratio did not affect. It could be concluded that addition of Moringa oleifera leaves meal up to 0.3% improved broiler performance, physiological parameters and enhanced the ability to resist heat stress conditions of broilers fed corn-soybean meal diet.
