Effect of Adding Aloe Vera Gel and Garlic Powder on Performance and Liver Functions of Broiler Chickens
The present study was designed to evaluate the effects of supplementing different levels of Aloe Vera gel and garlic powder on performance and liver functions of broiler chickens. For this purpose, one hundred and sixty, one-day-old, Ross chicks were used, in completely randomized design, in four treatments and each with four replicates. The treatment groups consisted of: control group fed only with non-supplemented basal diet, group 2 supplemented with 3% Aloe Vera gel in drinking water, group 3 supplemented with 3%garlic powder in diet and group 4 supplemented with 1.5% Aloe Vera gel in drinking water + 1.5% garlic powder in diet, which were reared for 42 days. The results of this study showed that broilers receiving A. Vera gel + garlic powder had highest final body weight, feed intake and lowest FCR compared to the control groups (P > 0.05). The other results of this study showed that adding A. Vera gel and garlic powder decreased in serum activity of SALP, SGPT and SGOT between the birds receiving A. Vera and garlic powder with other groups (P > 0.05).
