Abstract—Phytogenic feed additives, also called as phytobiotics or botanicals, are plant-derived compounds added into diets to enhance the productivity of poultry. This study was conducted to investigate the effect of administration of Satureja khuzestanica Essential Oils (SKEO) through drinking water on immune performance of broiler chicken using 720 one-day-old Arian chicks. The birds raised under standard production practices up to 42 days of age. The birds were continuously received drinking water treated with Tween 80 (Cont+; 500 ppm) or SKEO at 0 (Cont-), 200, 300, 400 and 500 ppm. The mean Hemagglutinin Inhibition (HI) antibody titer was not significantly differ among the treatments at 15, 21, 28 and 35 days of age (P>0.05). No significant differences were pointed out for relative weight of spleen, Bursa and thymus at 21d. Thymus weight reduced for the birds received treated water but a difference was only significant for 400 ppm SKEO. The mean Hetrophyle / lymphocyte ratio was not significantly differing among the treatments. It was concluded that supplementation of broiler chicken drinking water with Satureja khuzestanica essential oils has no favorite impact on immune response of heat stressed broiler chicken.
