Abstract: A feeding trial was conducted to discern the effect of dietary incorporation of sahjan (Moringa oleifera) leaf powder and tejpatta (Cinnamomum tamala) powder on haemato-biochemical parameters in commercial broiler chickens. 120, day-old broiler chicks were divided randomly into 4 treatment groups with 3 replicate each i.e. 10 broiler chicks per replicate. The feeding trail lasted for 42 days and blood samples were collected at the end of feeding trial. Chicks of treatment T1 (control) were fed basal diet (starter and finisher diet), whereas in treatment groups T2, T3 and T4, basal diet was incorporated with 0.5% sahjan leaf powder, 0.5% tejpatta powder and 0.25% sahjan leaf powder with 0.25% tejpatta powder, respectively. There was no significant difference was observed in haematological parameters among different treatment groups. The average haemoglobin content of different groups T1, T2, T3 and T4 was 9.06, 9.26, 9.30 and 9.28 gram per cent, respectively. Maximum serum cholesterol reduction was observed in the group T4 (135.35 mg/dl) which was significantly different from other incorporated groups T1, T2, T3 (147.98, 141.92 and 142.42 mg/dl). The serum triglycerides concentration in broiler chickens reduced significantly in T4 (57.62 mg/dl), T3 (59.15 mg/dl), T2 (60.02 mg/dl) of broiler chicks fed diets included with sahjan and tejpatta alone and their combination as compared to T1 (62.28 mg/dl). There was no significant difference in serum total protein, albumin, globulin and glucose concentrations as well as serum ALP, ALT and AST activities among the different treatment groups. Therefore, it could be concluded that incorporation of sahjan (Moringa oleifera) leaf powder and tejpatta (Cinnamomum tamala) powder in the diets of commercial broiler chickens had lower level of serum cholesterol and triglyceride.
