AbstractThe present experiment aimed to study the effect of diet supplementation ginger and antibiotic on broiler Performance, One hundred sixty seven non sexed day old (Hubbard) broiler chicks divided to four treatment with two replicates (22 chicks per replicate). The chicks were housed in Battery cages with four decks, The feed and water were supplied ad libitum. Chicks were random divided into four treatment groups as follows: The First treatment (T1): control, The second treatment (T2) basal diet + 0.4 % ginger. The third treatment (T3) basal diet + 0.8 % ginger The fourth treatment (T4), basal diet +0.5% Antibiotic (Newmycin). The parameters were study (body weight ,body weight gain, feed consumption, feed conversion ratio, mortality, water consumption, water consumption/ feed consumption ratio, relative growth rate and production index). At the end of the first week T2, T3, T4 data showed asignificant (p<0.05) decreasing in mortality compared with T1. From 1-28 days T4 showed significant (p<0.05) decreasing in feed consumption, water consumption compared with T1. From 29-49 days T1, T4 revealed significant (p<0.05) increased in body weight compared with T2. T1 had significantly (p<0.05) increased the feed consumption compared with T4. The relative growth rate in T3 showed significant (p<0.05) difference than T2. Through the period 1-49 days T4 showed significant (p<0.05) decreased in feed consumption compared with T1, but there were no significant (p<0.05) difference in body weight gain feed consumption ratio, mortality, water consumption/ feed consumption ratio, relative growth rate, production index between all the treatment. The over all datd showed that diet supplementation with ginger or antibiotics were significanty improved broiler performance.
