The study was conducted to investigate the effects of feeding dried leaves of both variety of Clitoria ternatea L. using grass as basal feed, on the haematological parameters of Indian goats. The study lasted for 90 days during which haematological parameters were monitored in 9 healthy male goats. At the start of the experiment, packed cell volume (PCV) ranged from 16 to16.3 while haemoglobin concentration (Hb) and RBC ranged from 4.10 to4.16 g/dl and 8.2 to 8.4 n/cumm, respectively. White blood cells reduced from 7.6 to 6.4 thousand/cumm as dried clitoria leaves increased in the diets. At the end of the trial, there was a slight increase in the values of PCV and Hb in the diets. Blue variety leaves showed good results as compare to the white variety. The study revealed that inclusion of dried clitoria leaves in the diets of goats had no deleterious effects on the haematological parameters of goats and could therefore be included in ruminant diets.
