Abstract


One hundred and fifty day old broiler chicks arbor acre strain were used in a seven weeks experiment to determine the effect of different levels of supplementations (0, 100, 200, 300 and 400 g per 100 kg) of Ocimum gratissimum leaf meal on the performance, haematology and serum biochemical profile of broiler chicken. The birds were divided into five dietary treatments. Each treatment was replicated trice with thirty birds per treatment in a completely randomized design. Data were obtained on the performance parameters such as body weight, feed intake, while feed conversion ratio and livability was calculated. Blood samples were collected for hematology and serum biochemistry. The result of the performance characteristics showed that there were significant differences (P<0>
