Résumé partiel
The present study was conducted in broiler chickens with an objective to explore the possibilities of inclusion of herbal feed additive Aegle marmelos (Bael) and Trigonella foenum-graecum (Fenugreek) either alone or in combination. A 42 day feeding trial was conducted under standard feeding and managemental conditions with broiler starter (0-21 days) and finisher (21-42 days) ration with 300, day old Vencobb broiler chicks randomly divided into 10 treatment groups (C-T9) with three replicates of 10 chicks each. Basal diet supplemented with Bael (T1:0.5%, T2:1%, T3:1.5%), Fenugreek (T4:0.5%, T5:1%, T6:1.5%) and three levels of combined feed additive (T7:0.25% Bael +0.25% Fenugreek ;T8 : 0.50% Bael +0.50% Fenugreek and T9 : 0.75% Bael +0.75% Fenugreek) in addition to non supplemented basal feed in control group (C). Three birds per replicate under each treatment were randomly selected and shifted to metabolic cages for five day digestion/metabolic trial to assess the digestibility of different dietary principles and nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus retention. Blood (3 ml) was collected from wing vein of each of the three randomly selected birds from each replication at 42nd day of experiment for the estimation of different haemato-serobiochemical parameters. One broiler from each replicate was sacrificed at the end of trial to estimate the different carcass parameters. Environment stress was observed during feeding trial as ambient temperature and THI were recorded on higher side than the threshold level during whole experiment period. The total feed intake was recorded to be not effected of treatment. All supplemented groups revealed significantly higher (P<0.05) body weight gain over control. The overall FCR was found significantly lowest in broilers under treatment groups. The overall PER did not vary significantly during 138 the trial. The PI value varied non-significantly during the experiment. No mortality was observed during the experimental period.
