Abstract: A total of 300 day old Vencobb broiler chicks of either sex were randomly distributed into five dietary treatment groups with three replicates with 20 chicks in each group. The treatments were included the T1 control (basal diet as per BIS 2007); T2 Basal diet + Bacitracin methylene disalicylate @20 g/ quintal of feed; T3 Basal diet + Cinnamon powder @ 250 g/ quintal of feed; T4 Basal diet + Synbiotic @ 50 g /quintal of feed for 7 days and then @ 25 g/quintal of feed and T5 Basal diet plus the combination of cinnamon and synbiotic. Results revealed no statistical (P>0.05) difference in haemoglobin concentration and packed cell volume percentage among the groups on 21st day of age, but significantly at (P<0.01) increased in broiler fed diets containing synbiotic and synbiotic plus cinnamon than control diet was observed on 42nd day. Creatinine level did not differ significantly (P>0.05) at 21 days and 42 days of experiment. AST and ALT did not differ significantly (P>0.05) among dietary treatments at 21 days and 42 days of age. It was concluded that synbiotic and cinnamon can be used in broiler chick without any harmful effect on their health.
