  An experiment was carried out to study the effect of CoQ10 supplementation at 20 and 40 mg kg–1 in high energy diets under higher environmental temperature. The trial was carried out with 216 days old Cobb 400 broiler chicks divided into four treatments with nine replicates containing six birds in each. The treatments include normal energy diet (NE) (G1) (as per breeder’s specifications) and high energy (HE, Normal energy plus 100 kcal) diet without (G2) and with CoQ10 supplementation at 20 (G3) and 40 (G4) mg kg–1. The Temperature Humidity Index (THI) during the study ranged from 24.46-33.05°C. The bird’s growth performance, feed intake, feed efficiency, its serum lipid, mineral profile, serum antioxidant activity, muscle lipid and CoQ10 content, slaughter parameters cost of live weight gain were studied. There was no significant difference in the body weight gain, feed intake, feed efficiency in the growth periods and slaughter parameters among the treatment groups, whereas the production score, higher intestinal length and better feed cost per kg of live weight gain was observed in NE fed groups than the other three groups. The serum and muscle lipid content was reduced and serum antioxidant activity was increased with on CoQ10 supplementation at 20 and 40 mg kg–1 in the diet.

  An experiment was conducted to study the effect of phytase and citric acid on the growth performance, phosphorus, calcium and nitrogen retention with sixty 1 day old mixed sex broiler chicks for 42 days. The experiment consists of four treatments with three replicates and five chicks in each replicate. The treatments were: T1-control diet (0.3% available phosphorus), T2-control diet with 2% citric acid, T3-control diet with 800 U phytase enzyme, T4-control diet with 800 U phytase plus 2% citric acid. The results revealed that the weight gain of the chicks was significantly higher (p<0.05) for groups that received phytase and phytase plus citric acid supplementation. Feed intake and feed conversion ratio were significantly higher for group that received both phytase and citric acid. Phytase and citric acid supplementation individually and in combination significantly improved phosphorus retention. Calcium and nitrogen retention were significantly higher for groups that received supplementation of phytase and phytase plus citric acid. No significant difference in phosphorus and calcium content of toe samples were observed between broilers of different diets.
