Abstract
A study was conducted to evaluate the serum biochemical profile of Australorp and New Hampshire chickens. A total of 12 blood samples comprising of six from each breed was collected at 45th week of age were utilized for this study. No significant differences were observed between different breeds in the glucose (128.50±3.51; 130.72±2.11 mg/dl), total serum cholesterol (130.08±4.86;144.22±6.32mg/dl), total protein (4.48±0.16;4.58±0.17g/dl), serum calcium (15.00±0.90; 15.08±1.14mg/dl), and serum phosphorous (5.13±0.53;5.15±0.68mg/dl), levels. It is concluded that serum biochemical profile did not differ significantly (P > 0.05) between Australorp and New Hampshire chickens.
