The aim of the current study is to compare the effect of adding different types of vegetable oils to the Japanese quail diet on some haematological parameters such as the RBC count ,WBC count ,Hb concentration , the value of PCV ,(H / L ratio) and biochemical parameters such as the concentration of cholesterol , triglycerides , high-density lipoprotein (HDL),low density lipoprotein )LDL ) in addition to the concentration of total protein ,glucose , uric acid and liver enzymes GOT, GPT, ALP in the blood serum.
In this study , a total of 100 birds from Japanese quails aged 60 days were used and distributed randomly into five treatments:
The first group (T1) is represented control group fed diet containing 5 % corn oil.
The second group (T2) is fed diet containing 5 % olive oil .
The third group (T3) is fed diet containing 5 % fenugreek oil.
The fourth group (T4) is fed diet containing 5% rapeseed oil .
The fifth group (T5) is fed diet containing 5% linseed oil .
The result of the experiment show that there is presence of a no significant increase in the RBC and high significant(P <0.05) in WBC count , the concentration of hemoglobin Hb , percentage of PCV values , protein concentration and high-density lipoprotein in groups treated with olive oil , fenugreek, rapeseed linseed oil as compared to a range of bird -treatment corn oil, as well as the results of this study show that there is significant decline (P<0.05) in concentration of cholesterol and triglycerides , and the concentration of LDL(low density lipoprotein) as well as the concentration of glucose and uric acid in groups treated with different types of vegetable oils as compared with corn oil . As for the impact of these vegetable oils on the liver enzymes have contributed to these oils to raise the proportion of each of GOT , GPT, ALP enzymes a compared with a group of birds that fed on corn oil .
