Abstract: The present study was conducted to investigate the effect of alum as litter amendment on broiler performance. Broiler chicks were raised 1 to 42 days of age. A total 200 chicks were randomly assigned in four groups comprising of 50 each. The birds were raised on different concentrations of alum treated rice hulls. Overall performance index was significantly higher in T3 followed by T2, T1 and control groups. Litter pH of control group was significantly higher than treatments groups. Lowest pH was observed in T2 group which was non significant within T1 & T3. Moisture % of group T3 were statistically significant from group T2 and group T1. Moisture % was significantly lowest in T3 followed by T2, T1 and control Group. Nitrogen % of litter material of different groups were statistically significant among other groups. N % in litter was significantly highest in T3 followed by T2, T1 & control group.
