Abstract

This study was conducted in the poultry field of Al-Mustansiriya University/ Baghdad, to show the effect of adding different levels 0, 1, 5 and 10% of the fenugreek seeds in the rations containing many contaminated microbes on the productive performance of broilers. 150-day-old rose meat was used with a 41 average weight (gm), were randomly allocated to 4 treatments with 3 replicates, and for each treatment 15 chicks per repetition: 0, 1, 5, and 10% (T0-T3), respectively. The results of this study showed that fenugreek seeds contain good amounts of protein, fat, ash and carbohydrates, which are 24.92, 8.82, 3.08 and 54.28 respectively. Fenugreek seeds also have high levels of tannins, coumarins and flavones, followed by saponins, alkaloids, resins and starch. While the fenugreek seeds were distinguished by their lack of glycosides. In addition, the fenugreek was characterized by containing significant quantities of fatty acids such as oleic, linoleic and linolenic acids by 32.54, 55.04 and 4.55% respectively. The results of this study showed significant superiority (P<0.05) for treatment T2 from adding seeds Fenugreek over the rest of the transactions in the average body weight, weight gain and food conversion factor. As for the feed conversion factor, the T2 treatment also recorded (adding 5% of fenugreek seeds) a significant improvement (P<0.05) compared to the control treatment. The results showed a significant superiority of (P<0.05) in the measure of the productive evidence for the T2 treatment compared to the control treatment. Followed by the addition of 1% of fenugreek seeds had a moderate significant increase, while an increase of the addition rate of 10% decreased the weighted production percentage of chicks with a significant decrease compared to the control treatment.
