Present study evaluated the haemato-biochemical profiles of broiler chicken supplemented with dietary minerals (Se+Zn+Cr) at Veterinary College, Anjora, Durg (Chhattisgarh). Day old Ross 308 broiler chicks (n=120) were equally divided into three groups with 40 chicks in each group. Group T1 was without any additional minerals supplementation (control); whereas, group T2 supplemented with minerals Se+Zn+Cr @ 0.15+25+0.30 ppm and group T3 supplemented with minerals Se+Zn+Cr @ 0.20+50+0.50 ppm, respectively. Dietary minerals supplementation affected serum cholesterol level significantly (P<0.05). Serum total cholesterol level was observed to be 191.73±1.6, 117.1±3.36 and 108.93±1.71 mg/dl (P<0.05) in T1, T2 and T3 groups, respectively. On the other hand, serum HDL-cholesterol levels in T1, T2 and T3 groups were 65.53±1.14, 76.53±1.71 and 89.56±1.94 mg/dl (P<0.05), respectively. In T3 group, Hb% increased significantly (P<0.05) as compared to T1 and T2 groups (9.81±0.03 vs. 9.00±0.27 and 9.65±0.65 g/dl), but heterophil count (37.00±0.70 vs. 39.25±0.47 and 39.00±0.40%) and H/L ratio (0.70±0.03 vs. 0.77±0.02 and 0.76±0.01) decreased in T3 group as compared to T1 and T2 groups, respectively (P<0.05). However, PCV%, monocyte, eosinophil and the basophil counts were similar among the groups. Taken together, it may be concluded that mineral supplementation (Se+Zn+Cr @ 0.20+50+0.50 ppm) reduced serum total cholesterol, increased HDL-Cholesterol and affected certain hematological parameters in broiler chickens.
