Abstract: The study was carried out to see the effect of enzyme supplementation of high fibre diet on body weight and serum biochemical of broiler chicken in 6 weeks experiment. Six experimental diets ie. T1- Control, T2-8% CF without enzyme, T3-8% CF with enzyme, T4-10% CF without enzyme, T5-10%CF without enzyme was formulated to be isonitrogenous and isocaloric. Two hundred twenty five day old broiler chicks of uniform body weight were divided into five groups of three replicates each with 15 chicks per replicates. The final body weight recorded were 1825.02 ± 9.01, 1625.52± 15.20, 1795.62± 13.51, 1500.29±22.43 and 1575.05± 11.34g for T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5 groups, respectively at 6 weeks of age. The final body weight which were recorded at 6th week of age, showed that the birds of T1 and T3 attained significantly (P<0.05) higher growth than the groups T2, T4 and T5. But, when the data of T1 and T3 were analyzed, no significant difference (P>0.05) was observed between T1 and T3. The Blood glucose and Alkaline Phosphatase level were found to be normal. The average dressing percentage were 88.11, 85.88, 87.27, 84.35 and 85.73, giblet weight percentages were 6.32, 6.04, 6.21, 5.84 and 5.90, eviscerated weight percentage were 67.91, 66.76, 67.37, 65.14 and 65.54 for T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5 groups respectively. On the basis of findings of the present study it can be concluded that though the crude fiber level in broiler diet should be maintained at 6% level but it could be increased upto 8% level provided the diet is supplemented with mixture of enzyme.
