Abstract: The daily feed consumption of broilers from 1st to 8th weeks of age of control and experimental groups has been recorded in average daily feed consumption of broiler chickens was 60.19±29.30 and 63.69±30.50g in control and experimental groups, respectively. In between the two groups in the first week of age the feed consumption was almost equal (17.68 and 18.63g), whereas from 2nd to 8th weeks of age the daily feed consumption of broilers was found to be increased in both the groups under trial. The average weekly feed consumption by broilers was 421.35±205.00 g and 445.86±214.00 g in control and experimental groups, respectively. The average cumulative feed consumption remained 1458.59±1156.00g and 1549.47±1221.00g in the control and experimental groups, respectively. The maximum mean body weight gain of 1341.40 g was recorded for broilers belonging to control group. In ‘Biovet’ fed experimental group the average body weight gain at the age of 8 weeks was found to be 1534.40 g. Difference in body weight of broilers between control and experimental groups was found to be 13.33, 46.00, 28.76, 34.05, 47.62, 82.15, 165.00 and 193.00 g, respectively from 1st to 8th weeks of age. There has been constant increase in body weight form 1st to 8th weeks of age in both the groups. The average feed consumed per kg body weight was found to be 2.09±0.30 and 1.97±0.36kg in control and experimental groups, respectively.
