ration 521 (group III) for 45 days. All chickens were fed ration and drunk ad libitum every day. At the
end of the experiment, the blood samples were collected for analysis blood LDL cholesterol with
enzymatic methods using spectrophotometre. Analysis of variance with completely randomized design
indicated that treatment significantly effect on blood LDL cholesterol (P<0.01). From the results could be
