Used Different Levels of Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) Leaves powder to Effect on Hematology and Biochemistry properties induced with H O in Male Quails .


This study was carried out in the Poultry Farm of Animal Resources , Department of Agriculture , University of Tikrit , from 24 December to 3 March ,2012 . The aim of this study was to investigate the antioxidant of Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) on hematology and biochemistry parameters, Eighty mature male of (Cutornix cutornix) , 11 weeks old were used in the experiment . The males were divided randomly into eight groups (10 males in each group). The groups were as follow : 1- Control (basal diet), 2- Oxidative stress (basal diet + 0.5% H O ), 3,4 and 5 (basal diet supplemented with Thyme leaves at 2.5 , 5.0 and 7.5 g/kg diet respectively and received 0.5% H Owith drinking water), anther three groups 6,7 and 8 (basal diet supplemented with Thyme leaves at 2.5 , 5.0 and 7.5 g/kg diet respectively). Each group was fed ad libitum its own diet for a period at 4 and 8 weeks. The results showed that the additionof 0.5% H O to the drinking water caused a significant (p<0.05) decreased in Red Blood Cells counts (RBC) and increased (p<0.05) the Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) and Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV). Also non apparent significant effects (p<0.05) of supplementing Thyme leaves to the ration at the levels of 2.5 , 5.0 and 7.5 g/kg diet, with respect, RBC, PCV, Hb, MCHC, Cholesterol and Glucose concentration when compared to the control group. These addition of Thymeleaves to the H O treated male lead to cause returning of these values to its naturalaverages at control group compared with those male treated with H Oonly.Moreover , it has been noticed a non-significant (p<0.05) deterrent were found between treatments with respect to Glutamic Oxaloacetate Transaminase (GOT) and Glutamic Phosphate Transaminase (GPT) enzymes concentration .
