Effect of different temperature regimens on some haematological parameters in broilers

Indian Veterinary Journal 70(10): 917-920
Effect of different temperature regimens on some haematological parameters in broilers
One hundred and forty day-old unsexed 'Vencob' strain broiler chicks were used for this experiment. They were divided into three groups viz. A, B and C, brooded at temperatures 95 degree -100 degree F, 90 degree -95 degree F and 85 degree -90 degree F, respectively. The haematological indices viz. packed cell volume and heterophil:lymphocyte ratio were recorded during the experimental period. The results indicated that the broiler chicks in group C which were reared at lower experiment temperature (85 degree -90 degree F) had significantly higher (P lt 0.01) values of packed cell volume than the chicks reared at higher temperature (95 degree -100 degree F). During the post-brooding period however, the values of packed cell volume did not differ and remained almost the same among all the three groups. The value of heterophil:lymphocyte ratio was highest in group A, lowest in group C and intermediate value in group B, in brooding and post-brooding periods.
