Abstract: An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of supplementing drinking water with isomolar (0.067 mol/l) KCl or NaCl on mass gain, food and water consumption, rectal temperature, and plasma concentrations of aldosterone, Na+, and K+ in broiler chickens reared in thermoneutral and cycling heat stressing environments. Heat stress decreased (P > or = 0.05) mass gain, food consumption, and plasma concentrations of Na+ and K+, while increases (P < or = 0.05) in plasma concentrations of aldosterone, rectal te…
