Abstract: The aim of this experiment was to determine the effect of Orego-Stim® on broiler chick performance and some blood parameters. This research was carried out on the base floor using 120 male Ross PM3 7 days old hybrid chicks. In the 1st week of the research, the chicks were fed with starter diet, then 120 chicks were divided into four groups. Each group has consisted of three replications and each replication contained 10 chicks. Water and feed were given to the chicks as ad-libitum. Orego-Stim® (0, 300, 500 and 700 ppm) were added into four diets. Body Weight (BW), Body Weight Gain (BWG), Feed Intake (FI), Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) and death rates were determined in a group level weekly. At the end of experiment, Carcass Yield (CY) and Liver Weigth (LW), Gizzard Weigth (GW), Heart Weigth (HW) and Abdominal Fat (AF) weight were determined cutting all the animals in each group. Orego-Stim® had no significant (p>0.05) effect on BW, BWG and mortality of broiler chicks at all experiment periods whereas Orego-Stim® had significant effect on FI and FCR in the current study. On the other hand, Orego-Stim® had no (p>0.05) effect on CY, AF, LW, GW and HW.
