A study was conducted using 240 female day-old broiler chicks to evaluate the effects of dietary chromium picolinate (CrPic), peppermint essential oil (P.mint), or their combination on growth performance and blood biochemical parameters of female broiler chicks raised under heat stress conditions (HS, 23.9 to 38 °C cycling). Average daily gain (ADG), average daily feed intake (ADFI), and feed conversion ratio (FCR) were obtained from 1 to 42 days of age. Furthermore, at the end of the… 
Dietary Inclusion of Thyme Essential Oil Alleviative Effects of Heat Stress on Growth Performance and Immune System of Broiler Chicks
This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of dietary inclusion of thyme essential oil (TEO) on growth performance and immune responses of broiler chicks subjected to heat stress (HS). Broilers
Single and combined effects of peppermint and thyme essential oils on productive performance, egg quality traits, and blood parameters of laying hens reared under cold stress condition (6.8 ± 3 °C)
TLDR
It can be concluded that diet supplementation by combined form of PEO and TEO could have beneficial effects on performance parameters of hens reared under cold stress condition.
Single and combined effects of zinc and cinnamon essential oil in diet on productive performance, egg quality traits, and blood parameters of laying hens reared under cold stress condition
TLDR
It can be concluded that diet supplementation by the combined form of Ci and Zn could have beneficial effects on performance and blood parameters of hens reared under cold stress condition.
Performance, Egg Quality Traits, and Serum Metabolite Concentrations of Laying Hens Affected by Dietary Supplemental Chromium Picolinate and Vitamin C Under a Heat-Stress Condition
TLDR
A 3 × 2 factorial experiment consisting three levels of chromium (chromium picolinate) and two levels of vitamin C was employed to evaluate the effects of these dietary supplements on performance, egg quality traits, and serum biochemical parameters of heat-stressed laying hens from 66 to 74 weeks of age.
GROWTH PERFORMANCE, CARCASS TRAITS, IMMUNE RESPONSE AND ANTIOXIDANT STATUS OF GROWING RABBITS SUPPLEMENTED WITH PEPPERMINT AND OILS
TLDR
The blend of peppermint and basil essential oils has a potential use as antioxidant and immunostimulant for growing rabbits and does not significantly affect the final live body weight and average daily gain.
Effect of polyphenol extract on performance, serum biochemistry, skin pigmentation and carcass characteristics in broiler chickens fed with different cereal sources under hot-humid conditions
TLDR
It could be concluded that, supplementation of 50 mg/kg polyphenol extract from pomegranate peels improved production performance in broilers fed broken rice-sorghum as cereal source under hot-humid conditions.
Effect of dietary polyphenol‐rich grape seed on growth performance, antioxidant capacity and ileal microflora in broiler chicks
TLDR
GS could be recommended as an herbal supplement in the diet of broiler chickens to improve performance, reduce blood lipids, enhance antioxidant capacity and decrease detrimental bacteria in the ileum.
EFFECT OF PEPPERMINT SUPPLEMENTATION AS POWDER OR EXTRACT ON BROILER PERFORMANCE, SERUM BIOCHEMICAL CONTENT AND GUT HEALTH UNDER E COLI CHALLENGE
TLDR
Supplementation of peppermint has positive effect on broiler performance and gut morphology and it has effect on body weight at day 24 and 35.
Effects of grape seed extract as a natural antioxidant on growth performance, carcass characteristics and antioxidant status of rabbits during heat stress
TLDR
All tested levels of GSE were useful as a natural protection against heat stress to maintain performance, carcass traits and antioxidant status and could reduce the negative effects of heat stress in rabbits.
EFFECT OF DIETARY GRAPE SEED SUPPLEMENTATION AS A NATURAL GROWTH PROMOTER ON THE GROWTH PERFORMANCE OF JAPANESE QUAIL
TLDR
The most important results revealed that inclusion of GS in quail diets improved growth performance tested at 38 days and GS up to 3% can be used as a growth promoter without impairing quail growth.

Optimal dietary concentration of chromium for alleviating the effect of heat stress on growth, carcass qualities, and some serum metabolites of broiler chickens
TLDR
Results of the present study conclude that a supplementation of diet with chromium at 1200 ppb can alleviate the detrimental effects of heat stress in broiler.
Chromium Supplementation Can Alleviate the Negative Effects of Heat Stress on Growth Performance, Carcass Traits, and Meat Lipid Oxidation of Broiler Chicks without Any Adverse Impacts on Blood Constituents
TLDR
It is suggested that dietary Cr supplementation regardless of its source have a positive effect on productive, and carcass traits, also enhances oxidative stability of refrigerated meat in broilers reared under heat stress conditions.
Effects of dietary essential oil components on growth performance, digestive enzymes and lipid metabolism in female broiler chickens
TLDR
The present results show no effect of essential oil constituents on growth performance in female broiler chickens, but it cannot be excluded that positive effects would have been observed under less hygienic environmental conditions or when using a less digestible diet.
Effects of dietary chromium and zinc on egg production, egg quality, and some blood metabolites of laying hens reared under low ambient temperature
TLDR
It is indicated that either supplemental dietary chromium or zinc increased plasma insulin and decreased corticosterone concentrations and that had a positive effect on performance of laying hens under low ambient temperature.
Effects of different levels of vitamin E on growth performance and immune responses of broilers under heat stress.
TLDR
It is indicated that HS severely reduced growth performance and immune response of broilers, whereas the immune responseof broilers could be improved by dietary vitamin E supplementation under HS.

The Effects of Vitamin E on the Antioxidant System, Egg Production, and Egg Quality in Heat Stressed Laying Hens
TLDR
Dietary supplementation with higher levels of vitamin E alleviated some of the metabolic consequences of heat stress; there was no evidence of a beneficial effect on egg production during heat stress within the dietary range investigated.
