The experiment was conducted to determine the growth performance and serum biochemistry of earthworms cultured in different animal dung manures in a Completely Randomized Design experiment that lasted for 10weeks, using 315 earthworms. Five treatments, T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5 respectively containing garden soil alone (control) and four animals (poultry, rabbit, pig and goat) manure mixed with garden soil in the ratio of 1: 3 were put into rectangular plastic containers (30 x 42.5x27) cm. The…

TLDR
Differences were observed between bird types in serum protein, serum cholesterol, uric acid, calcium and potassium levels and in weight and the significance of these differences is discussed.
