Abstract:
Objective: The goal of this research was to study the effect of chicken feather meal on the feed conversion ratio (FCR) and blood lipid profile consisting of triglyceride, total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein (HDL) and low density lipoprotein (LDL) in broiler serum. Materials and Methods: This study used broiler chickens of 707 strain bred by PT Charoen Phokphand with varied sex and standard body weight. The broiler chickens were randomly divided into 5 treatment groups: Control (C) group were fed 100% BR-1 commercial broiler feed twice a day, treatment group 1 (P-1) was fed 90% BR-1+10% chicken feather meal, treatment group 2 (P-2 ) was fed 92.5% BR-1+7.5% chicken feather meal, treatment group 3 (P-3) was fed 95% BR-1+5% chicken feather meal and treatment group 4 (P-4) was fed 97.5% BR-1+2.5% chicken feather meal. Crude protein and total lipid content of the chicken feather meal was determined with Kjeldahl and Gravimetric methods. After 33 days of rearing period, body weight, FCR, triglyceride, total cholesterol, HDL and LDL level in blood sera were quantified and analyzed with ANOVA one way followed by multiple comparison methods. Results: The results showed that the quantification of crude protein content in chicken feather meal which was used in this study was 33.98%, while total lipid content quantified was 3.02%. The FCR value showed that only in the P-4 treatment group which was fed 97.5% BR-1+2.5% chicken feather meal showed a significant decrease of FCR value (p<0.05), while the treatment groups with higher feeding percentage of chicken feather meal (5, 7.5 and 10%) did not show significant decrease of FCR. Quantification of blood lipid profile including triglyceride, total cholesterol, HDL and LDL levels showed no significant difference (p>0.05) between control (C) and treatment group (P-1, P -2, P-3, P-4). Conclusion: The broiler feed with 2.5% of chicken feather meal could reduce the FCR value without being followed by the change of blood lipid profile. Therefore, chicken feather meal can be used as an alternative ingredient in broiler feed to reduce the production cost.
