Abstract

The present study was carried out on broilers to study the effect of Artemia Urmiana on hematological parameters for a period of 56 days (8 weeks). In this study 190 one-day old broiler chicks from Ross 308 strain were divided into five equal groups: L1, L2, L3, L4 (Test groups) and control group. The control diet contained 5% fish meal, and the other four groups contained 2.5%, 5%, 7.5%, and 10% brine shrimp. At the end of the 7th day, blood samples were collected from all the experimental groups and analyzed for the following parameters: RBC, WBC, Hb, PCV, MCV, MCH and MCHC. The blood sample collection was repeated at the end of 14th, 21th, 28th, 35th, 42th, 49th, 56th days respectively, and the blood parameters determined as well. The results demonstrated that in Artemia-fed groups the PCV, MCV, MCH, Lymphocytes and TP were more than control group, whereas Leukocytes and Heterophils were lesser than control group. However, RBC, Hb and MCHC were approximately equal to control group.
