Abstract

The study was conducted to investigate the effect of feeding graded levels of Andrographis paniculata leaf meal (APLM) at 0, 0.01, 0.1 and 0.2% on the sensory and biochemical parameters of 120 Abor-acre broiler chickens. The diet was isocaloric and iso-nitrogenous. The study was conducted for a period of 56 days. Data on organoleptic and biochemical parameters were collected and evaluated using randomized design. The results obtained show that glucose level, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), total protein (TP), cholesterol (CHO), albumin (Alb) and creatinine (CRT) were significant (p<0>
