Evaluation of adding commercial compound Mixoil to drinking water on the productive performance of broilers during summer in Iraq
This study was conducted in the poultry field of the Department of Animal Production, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Kufa, for the period from September 2, 2021 to October7, 2021, and for a period of 5 weeks. In this study, 300 unsexed broiler chicks, Ross308 hybrid one day old, were randomly distributed to five treatments, each treatment included 60 chicks, three replicates, and each replicate included 20 chicks. The treatments were as follows: Treatment (T1): (control) was given water without addition, treatment (T2): drinking water was given to it with an addition of 0.25 ml/liter of the commercial compound (Mixoil) for 6 hours, treatment (T3). Provide her with drinking water with 0.5 ml/L of the commercial compound (Mixoil) for 6 hours. Treatment (T4): she was given drinking water with 0.75 ml/L of the commercial compound (Mixoil) for 6 hours, treatment (T5): she was given drinking water to which it was added 1 ml/L of the commercial compound (Mixoil) for 6 hours. Water was added to the commercial Mixoil compound daily from 10 am to 4 pm (6 hours per day), the chicks were fed on two diets, a starter during 21 days of age and a final from 22 days of age until the age of marketing (35 days), some productive traits were studied. for broilers during the duration of the experiment. The results of the statistical analysis indicated that there was a The research did not deal with blood traits, so this sentence should be deleted .The results of the statistical analysis indicated a significant improvement at the level (p≤0.05) in the average live body weight at the fifth week of chick age and in the total weight gain of the treated birds that added different levels of the commercial compound Mixoil daily to their drinking water compared to the control group. T1), The results also indicated a significant increase (p≤0.05) in the average total feed consumption for the birds of the fourth and fifth treatments compared with the control group, and a significant deterioration in the values of the total feed conversion ratio for the chicks of the control group (T1) compared with treatments T2 and T3.We conclude from the current study that adding different levels of the commercial compound Mixoil to drinking water for 6 hours a day had a positive effect in improving some productive traits of broiler chicks bred in summer in Iraq.
