Résumé
Herbal feed additives serve as safer alternatives as growth promoter due to their suitability and preference, lower cost of production, reduced risks of toxicity and minimum health hazards. They also can regulate feed intake and stimulate digestive secretions. The present study was performed to investigate the effect of dietary supplementation with Aloe vera (Aloe barbadesis) and Tulsi ( Ocimum sanctum) powder on growth performance, feed consumption, feed conversion efficiency, carcass characteristics, and economics of broiler production. The experiment was conducted in a completely randomized design with total of 240-dayold broiler chicks (ven cobb) randomly assigned to four treatment groups with four replicates having 15 birds in each replicate for the periods of five weeks. Birds were offered the maize-soybean based basal diet. The treatment groups consisted of : control group (C) fed only with non-supplemented basal diet, group T1 supplemented with 0.5% Aloe vera powder, group T2 supplemented with 0.5 %Tulsi powder and group T3 supplemented with 0.25 % Aloe vera powder + 0.25 % Tulsi powder in diet. At the end of 5th week, 8 birds per treatment were sacrificed to determine the carcass characteristics. Therefore, on the basis of performance of broilers i.e. growth parameters, feed utilization, ultimately production in terms of live weight concluded that the use of polyherbal supplement in the form of Aloe vera and Tulsi as feed additive at a level of 0.5 % and 0.25% and its combination enhance the overall performance of broiler chicken.
