Abstract

The aim of the present study was to compare the effect of two probiotic
products, Biomin and Iraqi Probiotic, on some blood and biochemical properties
and intestinal microflora population in broiler chicks. A total of 500 Lohman
broiler chicks, one day old, were randomly distributed into five dietary groups as
follow:
T1: chicks fed on diet with half dose of Biomin (1.5 Kg/ Ton diet).
T2: chicks fed on diet with full dose of Biomin. (3 Kg/ Ton diet)
T3: chicks fed on diet with half dose of Iraqi probiotic. (2.5 Kg/ Ton diet)
T4: chicks fed on diet with full dose of Iraqi probiotic. (5 Kg/ Ton diet)
T5: chicks fed slandered diet. (Control)
Results obtained from the present study showed that both probiotics were
significantly (ρ > 0.05) increase packed cell volume (PCV), total count of
red blood cells, the concentration of hemoglobin and protein in blood
serum. However, the total count of white blood cells, H/L ratio, and the
concentration of cholesterol in the blood serum were significantly (ρ > 0.05)
decreased. Both Probiotics produce a significant decrease in the total
bacterial count, coliform and mold count and increased Lactobacilli count
in broiler intestinal contents. Iraqi Probiotic tended to have more compared
effect in increasing Lactobacilli count in the intestine with both Biomin
and control groups.
