Abstract

A study using ninety-nine day old Marshal Broiler chicks was conducted to investigate the effect of ginger 

root meal on growth, carcass and microbial population of broiler birds. The birds were randomly assigned 

to three treatments replicated three times in a Completely Randomized Design (CRD). Each treatment 

consisted of 33 birds with 11 birds per replicate. The birds were fed ginger root meals supplemented at 0%, 

1.5% and 3.0% representing diets 1, 2 and 3 respectively, with diet 1 as the control. Data collected on feed 

intake, final body weight, weight gain, feed conversion ratio, different carcass parts and microbial load of 

intestines, caeca and mortality were subjected to analysis of variance (ANOVA). Results showed significant 

decrease (P
