The results indicated that the second and third groups significantly (P≤0.05) increased in total gain , final weight , feed conversion ratio , hemoglobin , red & white blood cell count, while cholesterol , triglycerides were decreased significantly (P≤0.05) in the second and third groups ,respectively as compared to first group . On the other hand the periods has significantly (P≤0.05) affect on total gain and the final weight.
