The objective of this study was to investigate on the effects of different levels of chromium picolinate on performance, carcass traits and hematological values of broilers in heat stress condition. 240 male broiler chicks (Ross 308) were allocated to four treatments in a completely randomized design. Treatments supplemented with 0 (control), 500, 1000 or 1500 ppb chromium in the form of chromium picolinate. Each treatment consisted of 4 pens with 15 birds in each pen.
