Abstract:

The present research investigation was carried out to study effect of 50% ethanolic rhizome extract of Z. officinale on physical parameters on Lead induced toxicity in broiler birds. 140 broiler chicks were divided into 7 groups each comprising of 20 birds. The toxicity was induced by administration of lead acetate @ 200 mg/kg feed from T2 to T7 and T1 as normal control. T3 & T4 was given AA @ 200 mg/kg feed & Ext. @ 200 mg/kg b.w, respectively. T5 was given AA @ 200 mg/kg feed & Ext. @ 200 mg/kg b.w. T6 was given Ext. @ 300 mg/kg b.w. b.w, respectively. At the end of experiment, it was observed that, Zingiber officinale rhizomes extract @ 200 and 300 mg/kg bw alone (T4 and T6) and with L-ascorbic acid (T5 and T7) has restored the normal values of RBC, WBC, Haemoglobin concentration and PCV% which illustrated the protective effects of Z. officinale against lead toxicity induced in broiler birds.
