1600 Indian River x Peterson broiler chicks were distributed into 4 treatments with 400 broilers per replicate. The dietary supplementations were with 200 ppm of vitamin C, 75 000 I.U./tn of vitamin E and 200 ppm of vitamin C + 75 000 I.U./tn of vitamin E. Performance and primary and secondary responses in antibody levels to sheep erythrocytes (LRG), Brucella abortus (Ba) and to Newcastle modified live and dead virus vaccine (NMADV) were measured.
