  Twenty four growing Zaraibi kids, with an average age of 5-6 months and 19.25±0.51 kg weight were randomly divided into four equal groups to investigate the effect of clay addition in rations containing of neutrally contaminated and/or not Contaminated Berseem Hay (CBH) with aflatoxin. Tested Rations (R) consisted of: R1: Concentrate feed mixture (CFM)+(BH 3rd cut), G1, R2: CFM+CBH, G2, R3: CFM+BH+aluminosilicate, G3 and R4: CFM+CBH+ aluminosilicate, G4. The obtained results indicated that total DM intake was the lowest (809 g h-1) in G2 while the highest value (850 g h-1) was noticed with G3, followed by G4 (843 g h-1) then G1 (833 g h-1). However, Clays addition reduced the water consumption by kids. The daily body weight gain was significantly (p<0.05) enhanced in G3 and G4 supplemented with clay. Feed utilization was improved and the effect was more pronounced in group G3. Significant decrease (p<0.05) in blood serum creatinine, cholesterol and ALT concentrations in G4 compared with G2 was detected. Significant differences (p<0.05) in hemoglobin, MCHC and lymphocytes concentration between G4 and G2 were recorded. No significant differences were detected in respiration rate, pulse and rectum, skin temperature values among tested groups. Clays addition decreased the incidence of soft feces, bloating and diarrhea in group G3 and G4. Clays addition improved economic efficiency. Accordingly, it could be concluded that clays addition improved growth performance, liver and kidney function, as well as the economic efficiency with growing Zaraiby kids.
