Toxicity of Cadmium and Lead in Gallus gallus domesticus Assessment of Body Weight and Metal Content in Tissues after Metal Dietary Supplements

Salwa A. Abduljaleel and M. Shuhaimi-Othman

Abstract:
The influence of dietary cadmium on the accumulation and effects of dietary lead, examined in chicken. This experiment was conducted to investigate the toxic effects of dietary Cd and Pb on chick’s body weight and organ, content of the tissues of these two metals was also detected. One day age chicks of Gallus gallus domesticus fed diet supplemented with 25, 50, 100 ppm of Cd, second group exposure to 300, 500, 1000 ppm of Pb in feed daily during 4 weeks. The control groups were fed without supplementation of metals. The concentrations of Cd and Pb resulted in increased of Cd and Pb content in liver, gizzard and muscle. While Cd 100 ppm and Pb 1000 ppm were increased metals content in feather. Body weight of chicks was not influenced by Cd treatment. In contrary Pb treatment was significantly (p<0.05) decreased body weight of chicks after dietary treatment. On the other hand, Liver weigh in chicks was significantly (p<0.05) decreased after Cd and Pb treatments.
