This study was carried out to investigate the effect of cadmium on body weight, haematological and biochemical of domestic chicken. Chicken were divided into two groups. The first group was given a drinking water containing the concentration of 10 mg cadmium /L daily for a period of 30 days and the second group was given tap water and used as a control group. The result revealed decrease in the body weight of treated chicken by 12.7 % compared to control group, whose body weight increased. The haemoglobin (Hb) amount , hematocrit (Hct) value, and the total erythrocyte (RBC) count decreased significantly (P<0.05) in the blood of treated chicken, while mean cell volume (MCV) increased slightly compared to control. The mean cell haemoglobin (MCH) and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) had no changes in Cd treated chickens when compared to the control group.
The plasma glucose concentration, creatinine, aspartate aminotranseferase (AST), and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) were increased significantly (P<0.05) in Cd treated chicken in comparison to the control group
