Response of broiler chick to dietary selenium

Response of broiler chick to dietary selenium

Poultry Science 56(6): 2031-2038

Broiler chickens (480) were divided randomly into group 1, fed a Se-deficient diet (0.017 ppm feed) in combination with an adequate supply of vitamin E (50 IU/kg feed), and group 2, fed a diet deficient in both Se and vitamin E. The rate of tissue depletion of Se (in liver, kidney, heart and thigh muscle) was rapid in both groups. However, in group 2, the first signs of exudative diathesis (ED) occurred 6 days earlier than in group 1 (at 15 and 21 days of age, respectively).
