Hadi T, Amin D, Samaneh NG., Pistacia atlantica supplement, performance, immunity and pathology in fowl, Onl J Vet Res., 27 (7): 403-409, 2023. The effect of dietary Pistacia atlantica oil on performance and pathology in chukar partridges is described. Weight gain, feed intake and conversion ratio were determined in 3 groups of 18 day old chukar partridge chicks each, given a control diet or supplemented with 150 and 400 mg/kg Pistacia atlantica oil, respectively. Antibody titers (HI test) against influenza vaccine and necropsy pathology are described. Chicks fed 150 mg/kg Pistacia atlantica oil did not have differences in body weight gain or feed conversion ratio compared with controls. However, birds fed on diet with 400 mg/kg Pistacia atlantica oil had improved body weight gain and feed conversion ratios. There was no difference in HI antibody titers or pathology necropsy between groups. Findings suggest Pistacia atlantica oil may promote growth in chukar partridges.
