This study was conducted to determine the potential effect of coriander seed as growth promoting substance in broiler chicks raised under summer condition in Iraq (32-36oC). One hundred and eighty day-old Arbor Acer broiler chicks were randomly assigned to four dietary treatments with three replicate pens (15 birds/pen). Birds were fed experimental diets containing 0% (T1), 1% (T2), 2% (T3) and 3% (T4) coriander seed. Water and feed were provided ad libitum during the experiment.
