AbstractThe experiment was carried out in the poultry at Babylon to study the effect of Humic Acid in the diet on performance of Ross 308 Broiler chicks During the first period which extended form the 1st to the 6th week The period From 20/1/2017 to 5/3/2017 . A total of 180 one day old chicks were used , chicks were allocated randomly in to 4 equal treatments, 45 chicks for each treatment , each treatment was included 3 equal replicates, 15 chicks for each one. Treatments were arranged as follow:
The T1 treatments fed of Basal diet (Control group) and T2 treatments fed supplemented with Basal diet + 2.4 g/kg Humic Acids and T3 treatments fed supplemented with Basal diet + 4.8 g/kg Humic Acids and T4 treatments fed supplemented with Basal diet + 7.2 g/kg Humic Acids .
Results showed the following ; Addition of Humic Acids in the diet Broiler chicks during the period (1-6) week of the experiment , had a significant effect ) P≤0.05 (on body weights of Broiler chicks and accumulative feed consumption , accumulative weights gain and feed conversion rate as compared with the control treatment. Addition of Humic Acid significant effect on Carcass traits (Dressing percentage , The relative weight of the various Parts and Internal organs ) in comparison with control treatment .
