Abstract

The objectives of this research were to evaluate the effect of house temperature on feed consumption and blood component of broilers. The research used 140 male broilers of 2 weeks of age. The treatments consisted of 5 that were S1A (28,55  1,53 0 C) with ad libitum of feeding, S1BT1 (28,55  1,53 0 C) with pair feeding as S2A, S1BT2 (28,55  1,53 0 C) with pair feeding as S3A, S2A (31,07  1,29 0 C) with ad libitum of feeding and S3A (33,50  1,17 0 C) with ad libitum of feeding. Variables were measusured at 4 and 6 weeks of age. Variables measured were feed consumptoin, erythrocyte, hemoglobin, hematocrit and leukocyte levels. The experiment design used was a completely randomized design with 5 treatments and 4 replica-tions and continued by Duncan's Multiple Range test when it was significantly different. The result indicated that in 4 and 6 weeks of age, feed consumption and amount of erithrocyte in S1A, higher than in S2A and S3A. In 4 weeks of age, the hematocrite and leucosyte in S1A was higher than those in S2A and S3A. The restricted feeding tended to decrease the erythrocyte and hematocrit. Keywords: Heat Stress, Erythrocyte, Hematocrit, Hemoglobin, Leucocyte, Broiler.
