     The main aim of this study was to determine the effect of dietary Anethum graveolens essential oil on some blood parameters, egg yolk cholesterol concentration, hatchability and chick quality in broiler breeder hens. A total number of 80 hens and 8 cocks of Ross 308 strain (105 weeks age) were divided into 4 groups with 2 replicates with 10 hens and 1 cock in each replicate. One group was given a control diet and other group diets supplemented with 10, 20, 40 ml essential oil/100kg diets for 4 weeks. Essential oil significantly increased plasma cholesterol concentration (P<0.05), but plasma triglyceride, high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and egg yolk cholesterol concentrations were not influenced by dietary essential oil. Essential oil supplementation to diet did not significantly affect chick quality, while hatchability of total eggs set were positively affected by supplementation of the essential oil in the diet (P<0.05). The results of this study showed that supplementation of diet with 10 mg/100 kg diet Anethum graveolens essential oil improved hatchability of total eggs set of broiler breeders.
