The Effect of Adding Herbal Extracts to Drinking Water on Body Temperature, Level of Thyroid Hormones and H:L Ratio in the Blood of Broiler Chickens Exposed to Elevated Ambient Temperature

Abstract: The aim of the study was to determine the effect of supplementing drinking water with extracts from lemon balm, sage and nettle on body temperature, level of thyroid hormones and the heterophil to lymphocyte (H:L) ratio in the blood of broiler chickens exposed to elevated rearing temperature. One-day-old Ross 308 chicks were divided into four groups: group I (CON) and experimental groups II (LB), III (S) and IV (N), in which, from 22 to 42 days of rearing, drinkers were supplemented with lemon balm extract, sa… Show more

“…Breast meat can be regarded as an important component of a healthy diet as it contains more polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and less saturated fatty acids (SFA) than meat from other species of animals, e.g., beef and lamb (Berzaghi et al, 2005). Herbs and herbal products contain antioxidants that can prevent the oxidation of UFA and cholesterol present in animal-origin products such as meat and eggs (Orczewska-Dudek et al, 2020) and increase the antioxidant potential of the animal's body (Skomorucha, and Sosnówka-Czajka., 2021).…”
