Present study was undertaken to evaluate the biochemical composition in different body parts of Gallus gallus domesticus. Samples were collected from two sites of Khairpur city and its surroundings for assessment of various biochemical parameters such as protein, fat, moister and ash contents in different parts like intestine, heart, gizzard, lung, kidney, liver and muscle. The slaughtered chickens of uniform sizes were transported for further processes to Institute of Chemistry Lab, Shah Abdul Latif University, Khairpur. After this dissection, digestion and analysis was performed by the help of different methods and instrumentation. It was observed that all investigated parameters found high in main city sampling site as compared to samples collected from surroundings of city. Although the protein contents were found high in both sampling sites main city and its surroundings, as muscle contains (0.68, 0.61µg-1), gizzards (0.64, 0.58µg-1), heart (0.61, 0.55µg-1), intestine (0.53, 0.46µg-1), kidneys (0.45, 0.43µg-1), lungs (0.40, 0.38µg-1) and liver has (0.34, 0.35µg-1). The percentage of fat accumulation followed by gizzards<kidneys<muscle<liver<intestines<heart<lungs. However no significant difference was noted in percentage of moister and ash contents in all organs of chicken samples possibly due to equal quantity of (WAI) of chicken body.
