Summary. The article studied the combined effect of probiotic preparation of cell culture Bifidobacterium longum in the composition of the soybean-bifidum preparation in a dosage of 0.7 ml / kg of feed and iron nanoparticles (NP) in a dosage of 17 mg/kg on broiler chickens Arbor Acres. From the data obtained, it was found that broiler chickens of the II experimental group, when the probiotic preparation and Fe were combined, showed a significant increase in live weight by 10.16% against the background of a minimum feed consumption rate per 1 kg of production - 1.2 relative to the control bird. The combined effect of the probiotic preparation and NP NP was characterized by an increase in hemoglobin - 9.23%, erythrocytes - 26.53% (P≤0.05), total protein - 10.95% (P≤0.05) relative to chickens in the control group. The absence of pathological changes in the liver, despite an increase in GGT in II experimental group and total bilirubin, is characterized by a decrease in ALT, AST, as well as cholesterol and alkaline phosphatase by 24.3 and 27.5% (P≤0.05), respectively. It has been established that unbound iron is an inducer of lipid peroxidation and protein peroxidation. The level of Fe in the blood serum of chickens of the II experimental group increased by 48.44% (P≤0.05) relative to broilers of the control group. From this, it follows that metals in microparticles, having a low degree of release and rate of assimilation, thereby exclude toxic effects on the body and intestinal microflora. The obtained experimental data indicate the possible optimization of the mineral nutrition of poultry based on the use of Fe microparticles and leveling the load on the intestinal microflora by including soya-bifidum in the diet of the probiotic preparation.

Key words:broilers, feed, probiotic preparation, iron microparticles, blood, growth, development, morphology.
