Abstract   

    This study was undertaken, to estimate levels of glucose, total proteins, albumins, uric acid and triglycerides in plasma of Desi and Naked Neck laying hens. The experimental birds received ration containing 16 per cent crude protein and were housed in open sheds. The mean values (mg/dL) observed in Desi hens were 226.736 ± 15.20 glucose, 1.624 ± 0.224 albumin, 5.203 ± 1.078 total proteins, 4.633 ± 1.875 uric acid and 529.800 ± 554.74 triglycerides. In Naked neck hens, the mean values were found to be 231.818 ± 31.376 glucose, 1.562 ± 0.287 albumins, 4.533 ± 0.797total proteins, 4.157 ± 1.336 uric acid and 791.200 ± 320.474 triglycerides. There was no difference (P<0.05) in mean values of blood parameters between both the native laying hens which suggested that in identical genetical mechanism regulated concentrations of blood chemical constituents under study.    

Key words: Estimation of glucose, total proteins, albumin, uric acid, triglycerides, blood, native hens.
