Effect of Water Supplementation with Herbal Extracts on Broiler Chicken Welfare / Wpływ Dodatku Do Wody Ekstraktów Ziołowych Na Dobrostan Kurcząt Brojlerów

Abstract: This study investigated the effect of adding extracts from selected herbs to water on alleviation of broiler stress associated with intensive production, and thus on improvement of welfare. In experimental groups (II, III and IV), alcoholic extracts from chamomile inflorescence (Matricaria chamomilla L.), lemon balm (Melissa officinalis L.) or from St John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum L.), respectively, were added to water drinkers (2 ml ∙ l-1 water) from 21 to 35 days of rearing for 5 h/day. Throughout the ex… Show more

“…The addition of agrimony extract to poultry nutrition can protect fatty acids in meat against oxidation. It is possible to provide the extract through a water source with high efficiency [71]. A significantly higher increase in MDA concentration was observed in the meat of the experimental group due to a higher amount of PUFA in those muscles.…”

“…A way of enhancing the efficacy of plant extracts may be the water supplementation, which ensures uniform mixing into water, uniform intake by birds and to avoid wastage [10]. Skomorucha and Sosnówka-czajka [11] also reported that the response of broilers to the water supplementation with certain herbs was positive in terms of growth performance, physiological response to stress and welfare. Therefore, this study was conducted to meet consumer preference for safe, hygienic, less prone to oxidative processes and antibiotic-free poultry meat.…”

“…The European Union's prohibition of using antibiotics in feeds as growth stimulants made breeders and feed producers look for new nutritional solutions. Apart from Animals 2021, 11, 1550 2 of 16 probiotics, prebiotics, organic acids, antioxidants, and feed enzymes, various preparations of plant origin-so-called phytobiotics-have raised more and more interest [1][2][3][4][5]. Hippenstiel et al [6] and Tavakolinasab et al [7] report that herbs can be used in various forms: fresh or dried, infusion, brew, extract, essential oils and macerates.…”
