The aim of this study was to determine feasibility of Gamma irradiation in broiler chicks’ diet and scrutiny of productive performance of broiler due to gamma irradiated diets. There were 256 broiler chicks (male and female) from Arian strain. Experiment was statistically analyzed using balanced complete randomized design with four factors (including four irradiation doses: 0, 6.7, 7.7 and 8.7 Kilogray) and four replicates in each treatment. The results showed that there were significant (P≤0.05) difference in body weight gain and feed intake between control and irradiated groups. There was no significant (P>0.05) difference in feed conversion ratio (FCR) between irradiated and control groups. Statistical comparison for mortality rate indicated that there was no significant (P>0.05) difference between irradiated and control groups.
