There are many medical compounds in bay laurel leafs includes Thymol, Carvacrol, Cinnamaldehyde, Eugenol, and Nonoterpenes besides it contains antioxidants like phenols and its ability to resist the growth of pathogenic bacteria and fungus. So this study was conducted to measure the Response of performance and some blood traits of quail to bay laurel (Laurus nobilis L.) leaf powder supplementation by 0, 1, 2, 3% to the diets fed to 180 seven days old met type quail distributed to four treatments with three replicates for each treatment (15bird /replicate). The results showed no differences between experimental treatments for live body weight, weight gain and feed consumption but some differences were noticed for feed conversion ratio in favor of to bay laurel leaf powder supplementation. VLDL and triglyceride decreased significantly by adding bay laurel leaf powder.
