This study was conducted to investigate the effect of cucumber (Cucumis sativus) seed juice in drinking water on the performance and carcass parameters of broiler chickens. A total of 200 D.O.C of broilers were used for the research. The experiment utilized a completely randomized design in arrangement of four treatments. Each treatment was divided into 5 replications (10 birds each) drank from 8 to 35 d. The birds were housed in battery cages with ad libitum access to feed and water. The treatments were given cucumber seed juice at different concentrations (0, 10, 20, 30 g per liter water, respectively). During which, feed intake, carcass yield, abdominal fat, giblet, blood LDL-cholesterol and HDL-cholesterol were measured. Data were subjected to the analysis of variance test followed by honestly significant difference test. Results showed that the diet with cucumber in drinking water was significantly decreased abdominal fat percentage, and increased blood LDL-cholesterol, but were no affected to final body weight, giblet and the value of blood HDL-cholesterol and kept the good value of carcass percentage. It can be concluded that cucumber seed juice in drinking water could be acceptable up to 30 g per liter water.
