Aflatoxins at level 250g/kg was included in the diet of three different strains of commercial broiler chicken designated as A, B and C and growth of twenty chicks/group (control as well as treated), was observed for 3 weeks. Compared to controls, at least in two of the strains, significant weight loss was noted. In strain "A" and "C respectively 33.3% and 13.2% weight loss was recorded, indicating strain difference in chicks to aflatoxin susceptibility. Use of broiler strains resistant to aflatoxin would help in minimizing this problem.

Keywords: Aflatoxin, weight gain, broiler strain.
