An experiment was planned with an aim to study the efficacy of herbal supplement of calcium and
phosphorous, Ayucal Liq. (supplied by Ayurvet Ltd. Baddi, India) in 96 commercial day old broiler chicks at
college of Veterinary and Animal sciences ,Bidar, KVAFSU, Karnataka, India. Day old chicks were randomly
divided to two groups (One control and one treatment) comprising three replicates per treatment of 16 birds
each. Group A served as control and was supplemented with basal diet without any additional source of
calcium and phosphorous. Group B was administered with Ayucal Liq.@ 10ml/100birds/day for duration of five
rd th weeks, respectively. Parameters evaluated were growth, performance, and serum biochemical after 3 and 5
th week & tibial mineralisation after 5 week. Body weight gain and FCR was significantly higher in the treated
group as compared to control. Among biochemical parameters serum Ca, P, Cholesterol, Serum alkaline
phosphatase were found to be improved in treated group as compared to control group. Tibial mineralisation
was significantly better in treated group than control. It can be concluded that supplementation of Ayucal
Liquid is efficacious in enhancing bioavailability of Ca & P, thereby improving overall performance & bone
