Abstract
Animal feeding based on aromatic plants parallel to their natural requirements became an interesting research topic particularly after antibiotic supplementation to diets was banned in Europe at the beginning of 2006. Plants are used for medical treatments since the prehistoric time. An experiment was conducted on 240 commercial broiler chicks i.e. day old (Ven Cobb Strain). The chicks were divided into four groups, each of three replicates of 20 chicks each. The chicks were kept in floor pens, water and feed were provided ad libitum throughout the experimental period of 42 days. Four experimental diets were prepared, without any supplementation (T1) control, with supplementation of Aswagandha powder @ 5 kg/t of feed (T2),with supplementation of Shatavari powder @ 10kg/t of feed (T3) and with supplementation of Aswagandha and Shatavari @10kg/t of feed (T4). There was significant (P<0.05) effect of supplementation on cumulative body weight of broilers in (T3) group compared to those in (T2), (T4) and control (T1) groups. Feed intake was significantly (P<0.05) higher in (T1) group than in (T2),(T3) and (T4) groups. The supplementation of Shatavari powder @10kg/t of feed (T3 group) significantly (P<0.05) improved FCR compared to (T1) group. It was concluded that the effect of addition of Shatavari powder on live weight gain, feed intake and feed conversion ratio was significant (P<0.05) compared to control group.
