Abstract

Broiler is consumed by human population in large quantities. Its brooding conditions are very important due to their linkage with the financial impacts involved in poultry industry. These brooding conditions are not only vital due to economic reasons but also extremely important due to health impacts on chickens and human population being terminal consumers. As (III) presence in the drinking water is resulted in bio-accumulation in chicks being brooded under otherwise similar conditions except drinking water. This bio-accumulation disturbs the eco-physiological and blood parameters. Haematological studies of anti-coagulated and serum blood samples core parameters reveals that As (III) contamination in drinking water is the significant source of adverse disturbance of blood parameters of red blood cell, white blood cell, hemoglobin, packed cell volume, sodium, calcium, potassium ions, albumin, urea, creatinine and cholesterol, with a highly significant p value of less than 0.01 after 14th brooding day with bio-accumulation of 25.8 µg/L of As (III) in blood samples.
