Growth Performance, Serum Biochemical Indices, Duodenal Histomorphology, and Cecal Microbiota of Broiler Chickens Fed on Diets Supplemented with Cinnamon Bark Powder at Prestarter and Starter Phases

Abstract: Ross 308 broiler chicks (n = 240) aged 1 day were assigned to five groups for eight replicates (six chicks for each) (3♂ and 3♀). Basal dietary groups were supplemented by 2000, 4000, and 6000 mg/kg cinnamon (CN) for 21 days. Basal diet alone was used as a negative control, and basal antibiotic diet (Colimox) was used as a positive control. At 10, 14, and 21 days of age, chicks that received 2000 mg CN and Colimox had a higher body weight, resulting in an increase in body weight gain. CN also resulted in the m… Show more

“…This agrees with the work of Kumanda et al (2019) who also obtained similar overall weight gain and FCR when broiler chickens were fed 2.5% GP and control diet. The inclusion level of any dietary phytogenic additive in an NC diet that could afford improved performance of birds without side effects is referred to as reasonable doses ( Qaid et al, 2021 ). The sustained overall FCR suggests that supplementation of GP at 2.5% may be the plausible dietary dosage at which the growth performance of broiler chickens is comparable to antibiotics.…”

“…In addition, the ratio of villus length to crypt height was calculated [ 31 ]. Goblet cell density per 100 µm of villus area was determined according to the method of Qaid et al [ 34 ]. Histopathological changes in the ileum, liver, and kidney in the different treatments were examined microscopically (100 to 400×) according to the method described by Belote et al [ 35 ].…”

“…Moreover, as described by [ 23 ], high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) were used to detect the biologically relevant compounds in the CBP extract mixture. A total of 26 different active compounds with the highest quality were detected by GC–MS in the CNB extract, particularly Cinnamaldehyde, 3-phenyl-, hexadecanoic acid, (E)-2-propenal, methyl ester, 14-methyl-,methyl ester, pentadecanoic acid, oxime-, methoxy-phenyl-, and 2-methyl-benzofuran, as previously accounted for in [ 28 ].…”
