Significant increase showed in the PCV, Hb, RBC and WBC count in third week when the concentration 4 gm/ml-1 compares with control in treated of the birds. As showed significantly reduction in total cholesterol rate (p<0.05) in three weeks after treated with gel compared with the control, total protein (p<0.05) values showed significantly rise compare with the control and ALP (P<0.05) levels showed significant decline in the plasma in the third week when the concentration 4 gm/ml-1 in three weeks after treated compared with the control.
