  1. At the end of the trial, 8 birds from each treatment were selected to obtain wing vein blood and harvest serum. The levels of serum biochemical index were measured. The data in Table 10 different superscript letters indicate significant difference (P < 0.05); same superscript letters indicate no difference (P > 0.1), the same below
