Effect of Carminative Mixture on Health of Broiler Chicks

Rehana Kausar, Farzana Rizvi and A. D. Anjum    

Abstract: Carminative mixture was given to broilers at the dose rate of 0, 2 and 4 mL/litre of drinking water. At the age of 5th week body weight was significantly higher in broilers receiving carminative mixture in drinking water as compared with the control group (p<0.001). This trend persisted upto 8th week of age. There was an improvement in feed conversion ratio in broilers receiving carminative mixture as compared with the control group. Indices of heart, liver, thyroid, kidney, thymus and spleen were not affected by carminative mixture. While indices of bursa and thymus of broiler receiving carminative mixture (4 mL/L) was significantly (p<0.001) greater than the control group. Nonsignificant effect of carminative mixture was observed on haemogram, leucogram and serum proteins of experimental broilers as compared with the control. Geometric mean titre (GMT) in primary and secondary responses against Newcastle disease was not affected by carminative mixture at the dose of 2 mL/liter of drinking water. However, it increased at the dose of 4 mL/litre in experimental broilers as compared with the control. No effect was observed on GMT against IBD in broilers receiving carminative mixture.
