Various types of drinking water (alkaline ionized water, magnetic water, and a mixture of the two, and the tap water) have been employed in this research which was carried out in poultry farming, college of Veterinary medicine at the University of Baghdad and lasted for 36 days, started from 13/12/2016 up to 19/1/2017. To study the effect of the drinking water on 160 Ross broiler chickens’ physiological and chemical blood traits. The broiler chickens with an average weight of about 42 grams, which are 24 hours of age, were organized into four groups (40 each) in accordance with the type of the drinking water, the first group used the tap water (control group), the second used the alkaline ionized water, the third one used a mixture of the magnetic and alkaline ionized water and the last one used the magnetic water.The results indicated the second experimental group that proved to reduction in blood glucose, cholesterol, and triglycerides(115g/l,142.91 mg/dl,151.88mg/dl) as compared with control group (244g/l, 258.24 mg/dl,183.59mg/dl) respectivly..In conclusion, this study indicated that the ionized alkaline water is the potential candidate to improve some physiological traits for Ross broiler chickens.
