Abstract: 

This study was conducted to investgate the effect in L-carnitine of diets with different levels of protein on the performance and hematology value of ross 360 broiler chickens were kept for 42 days.The experiment consisted of six dietary treatments and four replicates per treatment with15 broiler chickens per replicate in a completly randomized design. Dietary treatments consisted of:1)Basal diet; 2)Basal diet with 125mg/kg L-carnitine.3)Basal diet with 250 mg/kg L-carnitine.4)low protein diet without L-carnitine. 5)low protein diet with 125 mg/kg L-carnitine.6)low protein diet with 250mg/kg L-carnitine.The results showed that during the xperimental period, brids were fed with sufficient quantity of protein had higher weight gain as compared to those were fed low protein diet (P<0/05). Reduciny of dietary protein level, caused significant increase in food intake and food conversion ratio (P<0/05).Also L-carnitine caused significant increase in ratio of the weight of breast and the weight of cookable chiken and significant decrease in the obdominal fat (P<0/05). Dietary protein and L-carnitine supplementation didn’t have any significant effects on the blood factors.
