Abstract: 

This experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of different mixtures of Malva silvestris, Alhaji maurorum, and Mentha spicata medical plants on performance, carcasses quality and blood biochemical and immunity parameters of broilers. Experiment was conducted in a completely randomized design with 384 of broiler in 4 treatment and 4 replicate (with 24 bird in each replicate) for 42 days and included: control group without using any medical plants, group 2 using 2% of medical plants (50% of Malva silvestris, 25% Alhaji maurorum and 25% of Medicago sativa), group 3(25% of Malva silvestris, 50% Alhaji and 25% of Medicago sativa) and group 4(25% of Malva silvestris, 25% Alhaji maurorum and 50% of Medicago sativa). There were significantly difference between treatments for carcass percent and blood biochemical parameters (P<0.05). The Highest percent of carcass (70.19) was observed in 3 experimental group but the lowest percent of it (66.77) observed in control group. Experimental groups had significantly difference in blood glucose level (P<0.05). The Lowest level of glucose (147.83 mg/dl) was observed in 2 experimental group and the highest level of it (183.5 mg/dl) was observed in control group. The overall results of the present study indicated that in broilers with using 2 percent of mixture of medical plants like medical plants of 3 experimental group (25% of Malva silvestris, 50% Alhaji and 25% of Medicago sativa) the improvement of carcass quality is possible.
