  An experiment was conducted to study the inclusion of Aloe vera and Curcuma longa and its combinations on production performance, viz., weight gain, feed intake and feed conversion ratio, carcass characteristics and biochemical parameters for a period of six weeks with two hundred and eighty commercial, straight run day-old Vencobb broiler chicks. These chicks were randomly grouped into seven treatments with four replicates of ten chicks each. The treatment groups consisted of control (T1), 0.1 percent Aloe vera powder (T2), 0. 2 percent Aloe vera powder (T3), 0.1 percent Curcuma longa powder (T4), 0.2 percent Curcuma longa powder (T5) and 0.1 percent of Aloe vera and 0.1 percent of Curcuma longa powder (T6) and 0.2 percent of Aloe vera and 0.2 percent of Curcuma longa powder (T7) included in the broiler diet. The results revealed that there was no significant difference in body weight and body weight gain between treatment groups from first week to end of the experiment period except at first week (P < 0.01). Similarly, no significant difference was recorded in feed consumption and carcass yields, but in feed conversion ratio significant (P < 0.01) difference was recorded at first week of age. Livability was 100 percent in T2 and T3 treatment groups. The mean return over feed cost differs significantly (P < 0.01) between treatment groups up to six weeks of age, which was mainly due to difference in feed cost of Aloe vera and Curcuma longa inclusion in broiler diet.

The abdominal fat percentage, breast and thigh muscle cholesterol showed no significant difference between treatment groups. The serum glucose, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides level did not differ significantly between treatment groups. Haemagglutination inhibition titre against Newcastle disease revealed significant difference (P < 0.01) between treatment groups. T2 and T3 showed higher titre value when compared with control.

  Two hundred and eighty commercial layer chicks belonging to single hatch were purchased from local hatchery, wing banded, weighed and randomly allotted into four treatment groups with four replicates of ten chicks each. The chicks were reared in cages in a gable roofed, open sided house. All the chicks were provided with uniform floor, feeder and waterer space and were reared under standard management conditions throughout the experimental period. Treatment groups were T1- control; T2-0.1% aloe vera powder; T3-0.1% aloe vera + 0.1% Curcuma longa powder and T4-0.1% of aloe vera and 0.1% of probiotic powder There was significant (p<0.05) difference in hen housed egg production, feed conversion ratio and return over feed cost in one percent aloe vera fed group compared to other treatment groups. No significant difference was observed in feed consumption, percent hen day egg production and percent broken eggs. It can be concluded that inclusion of 0.1 percent aloe vera in White Leghorn diet is economical compared to its combination with turmeric and probiotic at 0.1 percent level.

  Two hundred and eighty commercial layer chicks belonging to single hatch were purchased from local hatchery, wing banded, weighed and randomly allotted into seven treatment groups with four replicates of ten chicks each. The chicks were reared in cages in a gable roofed, open sided house. All the chicks were provided with uniform floor, feeder and waterer space and were reared under standard management conditions throughout the experimental period. The experimental diet was formulated according to the standards prescribed in Bureau of Indian Standards (B.I.S., 1992). The treatment groups were T1-Control; T2-0.1% aloe vera; T3-0.1% turmeric; T4-0.1% probiotic; T5-0.1% aloe vera + 0.1% turmeric; T6-0.1% aloe vera + 0.1% probiotic and T7-0.1% turmeric + 0.1% probiotic powder. There was no significant difference in feed consumption. Hen housed egg production, hen day egg production and return over feed cost differ significantly after 40 weeks of age during the experimental period. The overall mean per cent broken eggs differ significantly (p<0.05) among treatment groups but no significant difference was observed in overall mean feed conversion ratio per dozen eggs during the experimental period.
