Abstract
An experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of curd as probiotic on growth performance, nutrient utilization, blood biochemical and caecal microbial profile in broiler chicken. Day old broiler chicks (n=200) were procured and reared for one week with standard chick mash, and then divided into three dietary treatments having three replicates of 22 chicks in each. The treatment groups were fed the following rations for 42 days; T1 group fed basal diets alone (control), T2 and T3 groups fed basal diet with 10 and 20 percent probiotic product (curd fermented maize). At the end of the feeding experiment, a metabolic trial was conducted to evaluate the digestibility of nutrients. Average body weight change and gain in weight were higher (P
