An experiment was conducted to study the influence of unconventional feedstuff on immune parameters in giriraja birds. A total of three hundred one day- old chicks were distributed into 5 treatment groups each consisting of 4 replicates with 15 chicks each. Basal diet (T1) and the experimental diets were prepared by incorporating mulberry leaf powder at 5 % (T2), moringa leaf powder at 5 % (T3), sesbania leaf powderat5 % (T4) and azolla powder 5 % (T5). The duration of the experiment was 8 weeks. Blood samples was collected from two birds from each replicate on42nd day. Serum was separated and antibody titer against Newcastle disease virus and Infectious bursal disease virus was estimated using HA followed by HI (Allan and Gough, 1974) and using indirect ELISA kit. In conclusion of mulberry, moringa, sesbania and azolla at 5 percent had no significant improvement on immune response against Newcastle disease and Infectious bursal disease on the 42nd day of the experiment and also showed non-significant(P > 0.05) difference on immune organs weight of birds fed with different treatment groups compared to control. It was concluded that inclusion of mulberry, moringa, sesbania and azolla at 5 per cent was not beneficial in improving the immune parameters of Giriraja birds.
