This study was conducted to determine the efficacy of leaves of Neem (N) and Tulsi (T), and Ginger (G) i.e. NTG extract as a growth promoter in broilers. A total of 20 day old broiler chicks were purchased from Kazi Farms Limited, and after seven days of acclimatization it was divided into two equal groups, i.e., group A and group B. No vaccination schedule was practiced and no antibiotics were added in the ration of these broilers. Group A served as control group and was not supplemented with NTG extract while group B was supplemented with NTG extract @ 1ml/litre in drinking water. Weekly observations were recorded for live body weight gain upto 6th weeks and blood parameter was checked at 21st and 42nd days age of broiler to find out hematological changes between control (Group-A) and treatment (group-B). The FCR value in group A was 1.87 and in group B was 1.82; the result indicated that NTG extract played important role in broiler production. Mortality rate in group-B was nil in comparison to group-A, where mortality rate was 20%. Production of broilers in treated group was economic than control group. The treatment group recorded statistically non-significant increased live body weight than that of control group, and the hematological parameters (TEC, PCV, Hb and ESR) showed no difference as compared to control group. The profit margin (broiler/kg) of treated group was higher than control group. So, it can be concluded that NTG (Leaves of Neem and Tulsi, and gingers) extract as an effective and alternative of antibiotic growth promoters.
