This study aims to evaluate the effect of the addition of bile acid to optimize the use of energy from oil in poultry feed. Two hundreds broiler 1-day old Cobb were randomly assigned to 4 treatment with 5 replicate of 10 chics each for 35 d. The experimental treatments received a corn-soybean basal diet containing 1.5 % oil and were as follows: 0 (control), 0.5 g, 1 g, and 1.5 g bile acids/kg of diet. Dietary of inclusion bile acids significantly tended to decrease feed intake from d 21 to d 28 (P < 0.07). However, average daily, feed intake and FCR was unaffected by dietary supplementation with bile acids in 14 d to 21 d and d 28 to d 35. The dressing percentage, abdominal fat, liver, gizzard, non significant different for broilers fed diets supplemented with bile acids. In 35-day-old broilers, serum triglyceride, glucose and cholesterol were unaffected (P > 0.05) by bile acids supplementation. The results gives a update information that supplementation of bile acid in diets could potentially for future improvement in broilers performance.
