Abstract: On the 18th day of incubation, in each treatment 90 eggs were injected with 0.5 ml of 10 % glucose solution, 0.5 % lysine solution, 0.5 % threonine, 0.5 % β-hydroxy-β-methylbutarate (HMB) along with 90 eggs each were used as injected and non injected controls. On hatch, 288 broiler chicks from different treatments each with three replicates of sixteen chicks each were fed ad libitum with broiler mash as per BIS (2007) specifications. In ovo injection of glucose, lysine, threonine and HMB significantly increased eviscerated weight, ready-to cook yield, and heavier thighs in broilers. It is concluded that in ovo injection of above nutrients had beneficial effects on carcass traits of broilers.
