Abstract
An experiment was conducted to study the influence of Moringa oleifera leaves (MOL) as a functional feed additive on the growth performance, carcass characteristics and serum lipid profile of broiler chickens. 288-day-old commercial broiler chicks randomly divided into three equal groups containing 2 replicates of 48 chicks were offered a standard broiler diet (C) or Moringa oleifera leaves supplemented diet @ 0.25% (MOL-1) and 0.40% (MOL-2) on dry matter basis by partial replacement of sesame cake of control diet for 42 days. Incorporation of MOL at both 0.25% and 0.40% levels significantly (p
