The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of Quinoa Seed bioactive peptides (QSBP) on performance, some blood parameters and immune system in broiler chicks. A total of 240 one-day-old Ross 308 broiler male chicks were randomly allocated to 4 dietary treatments with 4 replicates of 15 birds each. Birds were fed on basal diets (Control) or basal diets supplemented with 50, 100 and 150 mg Quinoa Seed bioactive peptides for 42 d of age. At the end of each week, the weight of mortality, feed intake and the weight of chickens in each replicate were measured then the feed conversion ratio was calculated, Finally, carcass charactristics and blood parameters were evaluated. Results showed that experimental diets had a significant effect on feed intake during finisher and total periods in compared with the control group. Highest feed intake observed in birds that received basal diet supplemented with 150 mg Quinoa Seed bioactive peptides per Kg . Also ,broilers received 150 mg QSBP /kg of diet have significantly higher body weight gain and better feed conversion ratio than the other experimental groups (P<0.05). Also ,broilers received 150 mg QSBP /kg to diet have significantly higher body weight gain and better feed conversion ratio than the other experimental groups (P<0.05)Experimental treatments did not impact serum concentrations of cholesterol, triglyceride, LDL and HDL in chicks, but serum concentrations of Albumine was higher in broiler chickens which received all experimental diets compared with control (P<0.05). Heterophil and lymphocyte and antibody titres were not affected by the experimental treatments. However, the highest relative weight of spleen observed in broilers which received 150 mg QSBP /kg. It can be concluded that QSBP may improved growth performance, immunity and nutrient digestibility in broiler chickens.
