     This study was carried out to investigate the effect of adding different levels of Nanozeolite (NZ) in aflatoxin (AF) contaminated diets on performance, some blood parameters and ileum bacteria population in male broilers. Chicks from 7 days of age were assigned to one of six experimental diets consisted of a free AF as control diet and contaminated diets containing 0.5 mg/kg AF and various levels of 0, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 1 percent NZ. Four replicate groups of 14 chicks were allocated to each experimental diet. Chicks were raised for 21 day on floor pens. Blood were collected from birds at 18 days of age in order to determin of some blood parameters. Data were analyzed in a completely randomized design. Experimental results indicated that chicks were fed diet containing 0.5 mg/kg AF without NZ had significantly lower weight gain than control diet (P<0.05). Adding NZ to AF contaminated diets resulted to improve body weight gain in young broiler chicks. Experimental diets had not significant effect on feed intake and feed conversion ratio. Young broiler chicks fed AF contaminated diet without NZ had the lowest total protein and triglyceride concentrations (P<0.05). Adding NZ to AF contaminated diet resulted to increase of total protein and triglyceride concentrations. Serum cholesterol concentration was significantly lower in chicks fed AF contaminated diet without NZ than control diet (P<0.05). Experimental treatments did not have significant effect on serum albumin concentration. There was not significant difference among treatments for ileum bacteria population.
