An experiment was carried out to evaluate the effect of feeding antibiotic and probiotic on broiler performance. Body weight of the broilers was significantly (P< 0.01) influenced by all the dietary supplementation. Significantly (P<0.01) lesser feed was consumed by the birds raised on probiotic supplemented diet. Dietary supplementation of antibiotic and probiotic either independently or simultaneously improved the feed efficiency significantly (P<0.01) when compared to control. Dietary supplementation of probiotic and antibiotic increased the livability percentage of broilers.
