Title: Effect of Dietary Choline and Methionine on Broiler chicks Performance and Some Blood Praameters
Author: M, 'Dousa, B.; Abdelati, Khadiga A.; T, Salh, M.
Abstract: The experiment was conducted to determie the effect of choline chloride and/or methionine supplementation to diet adequate in all nutrients on the performance of broiler chicks. One hundred and twenty eight one day old unsexed broiler chicks were used in the experimett. Chicks were divided into four groups of 32 bids, 8 birds/replicate. The birds were fed on four experimental diets; diet supplemented with methionine (0.3%), diet supplemented with Choline chloride (0.4%), diet supplemented with both methionine (0.3%) and Choline chloride (0.4%), and control. All diets were kept iso-nitrOgenous and iso-caloric according the NRC (1984) requirements for the poultry. Feed and water were provided aci libitum. The experiment lasted for 6 weeks. Eight birds from each dietary treatment were randomly selected„ weighed and slaughtered for determining carcass dressing percentage and serum analysis. The results of experiment indicated that, all dietary treatments had no effect on feed intake, body weight gain, feed conversion ratio, dressing percentage, protein efficiency and serum glucose. However, 0.3% of methionine showed the highest serum cholesterol (P<0.01) and total protein (P<0.01) content. Choline chloride level resulted in a significant increase (r<0.05) on total lipids and it decreased serum cholesterol. However, the interaction between choline chloride and methionine resulted in a significant decrease on serum total protein and cholesterol level.
