This study was conducted to investigate the effect of adding Sage Oil (Salvia officinalis) to the ration on some blood serum biochemical traits of broiler Ross 308. 108 broiler chicks Ross 308 are used at one day-old were randomly assigned to three treatments (by 3 replicates per treatment; 12 chicks per replicate) and treatments were as follows: (Control group) without adding Sage Oil to the diet, (First treatment) add Sage Oil by 1% and (Second treatment) add Sage Oil by 2%. The experiment included a study of the following biochemical parameters: Concentration of Blood Glucose, Total Protein, Cholesterol and Triglycerides. The results indicated that the addition of Sage Oil by 1 and 2% to broiler diet led to a significant improvement in blood serum biochemical traits of broiler.
Keywords: Sage Oil, Blood serum, Biochemical traits, Broiler chicks.
