Abstract: 

An experiment was conducted to study the effects of zinc oxide supplement (ZOS) on amylase activity of the small intestine of male broilers. One hundred eight 10-d-old male broilers (ROSS-308) were used in the study. The birds were randomly assigned to 3 treatment groups consisting of 3 replicates of 12 birds and arranged in a completely randomized design (0, 50 and 100 ppm, ZOS added in the basal diet, respectively).Animals were slaughtered and different segments of small intestine (at 1, 10, 30, 50, 70 and 90% of total length the small intestine) were taken from each replicates (N=2) amylase activity was measured and recorded. Data were analyzed by SAS (P<0.05). The results indicated that of ZOS (100 ppm) significantly increased amylase at the small intestine of the broiler chicks (P<0.05).
