  An experiment was conducted at the College of Agriculture Poultry Farm, University of Basra from 20/11/2007 to 2/1/2008 to study the effect of adding fennel seeds to the diet on productive performance of broiler chickens. A total of 120 day - old chicks were randomly distributed into four dietary treatments of fennel 0, 1, 2 and 3 g/kg diet contained 36% and 32% chick peas in the starter and finisher diets respectively. Results indicated that there was a significant improvement (p<0.05 ) in final body weight and feed efficiency. Carcass characteristics had no significant differences except true stomach and pancreas weight percentage. Flier repletion was highly significant when fennel was added. However chicks fed 1, 2 and 3 g/kg fennel had significantly (p<0.05) higher red blood cells, hemoglobin and packed cell volume. Hetrophil to lymphocyte ratio was significantly (p<0.05) declined for the chicks received 2 and 3g/kg fennel.

  A research study was conducted to find the effect of Fenugreek (Trigonella Foenum-Graecum L.), parsley (Petroselium sativam L.) and Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) seeds as natural feed additives on broiler performance. A total of 120 day-old chicks were reared for 42 days. Feed and water were provided ad libitum. Chicks were divided into four treatments (30 birds each). Each treatment contained three replicates of 10 birds. Each treatment was fed on one of the following experimental diets:1) Control diets (without supplementation). 2) Control diets supplied with Fenugreek at 3 g/kg of the diet. 3) Control diets supplied with parsley at 3 g/kg of the diet. 4) Control diets supplied with Basil at 3 g/kg of the diet. Chicks fed basil diets had significantly (p<0.05) heaviest body weight than those fed the control and fenugreek diets. Carcass characteristics had no significant differences. Significant reduction occurred in serum cholesterol as compared to control diets. It would suggested that the supplementation of broiler chicks diets with (3 g/kg) basil or parsley seeds improved productive performance.

  Background and Objectives: This study was undertaken to investigate serum biochemical constituents of broiler chickens after incorporating a prebiotic (SafMannan, from Plileo Co.) and a local Iraqi prebiotic as feed additives. Methodology: A total of 195 straight run day-old broiler chicks (Ross 308) were randomly assigned to five experimental groups with 39 birds/group. Each group was subdivided into 3 replicates (13 birds/per replicate). The first group was fed a basal diet as a control group. The second and third groups were fed the basal diet supplemented with the SafMannan prebiotics at the level of 250 g t1 (Saf 250) and 500 g t1 (Saf 500), respectively. Meanwhile, the fourth and fifth groups were fed the basal diet supplemented with the local Iraqi prebiotics at the level of 250 g t1 (IQP 250) and 500 g t1 (IQP 500), respectively. Results: The results revealed a significant (p≤0.05) effect of SafMannan (Saf) and local Iraqi prebiotics (IQP) on the decrease in serum glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride concentration and aspartate transaminase (AST) enzyme activity in all dietary groups compared to the control. The group of Saf 250 and IQP 250 showed higher (p≤0.05) total protein and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-c) levels. Conclusion: Supplementation of broiler chickens’ diets with 250 and 500 g t1 of SafMannan prebiotic and Iraqi prebiotics led to improve serum lipid profiles and serum protein parameters. SafMannan prebiotics performed best by influencing serum blood indices compared to local Iraqi prebiotics.
