This study focused on determining the effect of white ginger root (Mondia whitei) on haematological indices and serum biochemistry of starter broiler chickens. A 28-day feeding trial was conducted using a total of One hundred and fifty Arbor Acre broiler chicken. The birds were divided into five dietary groups with three replicates of ten birds. The dietary groups were control (basal diet), Mondia whitei meal (MWM) + basal diet at graded levels of 1g/kg, 1.5g/kg, 2.0g/kg and 2.5g/kg. Blood samples were collected on 28 days of age for hematological and serum biochemical analysis. Data collected were subjected to one-way analysis of variance in a completely randomized design. There were significant (P<0.05) improvement in haemoglobin, red blood cell (RBC), lymphocyte, mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) of birds in dietary groups other than control treatment. Also, there were significant (P<0.05) improvement in total protein, albumin, globulin, urea, high density lipoprotein (HDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL) and cholesterol across treatments with varying level of inclusion of test ingredient when compared to the control. It can be concluded that the inclusion of MWM improved the haematology indices and serum biochemistry of starter broiler chicken and will not be detrimental to the health of the chickens at inclusion levels not beyond 1.0 g/Kg diet.
