Abstract

To evaluate the certain haematobiochemical parameters in different ages of Hubbard Classic broiler birds, the study was performed at Kazi Farms Ltd., Gazipur in collaboration with the Department of Physiology, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh for a period of one month (1st to 30th March 2002). On haematobiochemical examination, total erythrocyte count, haemoglobin content, packed cell volume, clotting time, glucose and uric acid concentration were gradually increased with advancement of age of birds. The values of TEC, Hb, PCV, clotting time, glucose and uric acid were recorded at day old birds as average 1.23 ± 0.02 million / cmm, 3.90 ± 0.09 g%, 19.60± 0.24 % , 37.20 ± 1.50 second, 179.20 ± 8.95 mg / dl and 3.72 ± 0.58 mg / dl respectively while the values at day 30 were 2.43 ± 0.07 million / cmm, 7.26 ± 0.16 g%, 28.20 ± 0.58%, 206.40 ± 10.17 second, 271.60 ± 8.56 mg / dl and 6.42 ± 0.65 mg / dl respectively which were found statistically significant (p < 0.01). On the other hand erythrocyte sedimentation rate, cholesterol and urea concentration were gradually decreased where significantly (p < 0.05) higher values (2.80 ± 0.20 mm in 1st hour, 330.40 ± 38.52 mg / dl and 26.42 ± 2.06 mg/ dl respectively) were recorded at day old chicks and lower values (1.80 ± 0.37 mm in 1st hour, 104.20 ± 3.24 mg / dl and 17.00 ± 0.07 mg / dl respectively) were recorded at age of 30 days old of birds. The findings of the present work clearly indicate that age has got influential effect on the body haemopoietic system of the broiler birds as well as haematobiochemical values.
