Abstract

This study proved that Delonix regia seeds are safe to be used as feed additive on male Broiler chickens for the effects D.regia seeds when added to the feeds and subsequent effects on the liver of male Broiler Chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus) was further investigated in this study. Forty five broiler chicks were divided into three groups; the control group received no Delonix regia seeds, and the other groups were treated with crushed Delonix regia seeds with 25% and 50% composition, respectively. After 45 days, the chicken's liver was extracted subjected to histotechniques. The result after the analysis indicates that the control group, 25% Delonix regia seeds and 50% Delonix regia seeds showed no alteration from their morphological state. The difference of the liver tissues between chicken fed with regular feeds and chicken fed with additive showed that there was a significant increase in the cell number between the control group and the treatment group with 50% Delonix regia seeds, and treatment group with treatment group with 25% Delonix regia seeds and treatment group with 50% Delonix regia seeds. The results showed that the liver cell size had a significant difference between the control group and the treatment group with 25% Delonix regia seeds that showed an increase in cell size at the treatment group with 25% Delonix regia seeds.
