  The anticoccidial efficacy of a herb, neem fruit (Azadirachta indica) is compared with an ionophorus anticoccidial Kokcisan (salinomycin sodium) against coccidiosis in broilers. Two hundred and forty one-day-old broiler chicks were reared for 42 days. These birds were divided into 6 groups i.e. A,B,C,D,E and F comprising of 40 birds each. There were six treatments, 25 gm salinomycin sodium/50kg feed (A), 50gm ground neem fruit /50kg feed (B), 100 gm ground neem fruit /50kg feed (C), 150 gm ground neem fruit /50kg feed (D), infected non-medicated (E), non-infected non-medicated (F). Groups A,B,C,D and E were given a challenge dose of coccidial oocyst at the age of 22 days. Weight gain, feed consumption, oocysts in the faeces, clinical findings and mortality were recorded. The result revealed that the birds of non-infected non-medicated group had better (P<0.05) weight gain as compared to medicated groups. The birds of Salinomycin sodium group have better weight gain and feed efficiency as compared to other treated groups but the difference was non significant (P>0.05). Moreover, neem fruit 150gm/50kg feed had excellent performance in terms of oocyst count and lower mortality as compared to other treated groups.

  A restricted feeding trial involving broiler chicks was conducted to investigate the effects of different levels of feed restriction. An experiment was carried out with straight run broiler chicks (Hubbard) in which commercial feed from 11 to 18 days of age was restricted to 100, 90, 80 and 70% in groups A, B, C, and D, respectively. Each treatment had 3 replicates, having 30 chicks each. The results indicated that feed restricted with 70 and 80% resulted in a significant (p<0.05) reduction in body weight at the age of 18 days. After return to adlib feeding the birds were fully recovered from their body weight depression. Comparable increase in all growth parameters (body weight, feed intake and FCR) were observed in birds fed on restricted diets in week 2 and 3. However in last week, the significant improvement (p<0.05) in weight gain was noted in group B (90% restriction ) but FCR was significantly improved in group D (50% restriction) when compared with control.
