The essence of the efficiency of probiotics lies in the stimulation of positive metabolic changes in the digestive tract of animals, improvement of nutrients absorption, enhancement of the organismsâ�?�? resistance and antagonistic effect on harmful microflora. When pathogen infection and various external stresses disrupt intestinal balance, animalsâ�?�? growth rate is retarded. Therefore, the population of harmful microbes should be minimized to maintain animal health and maximum animal productivity. Probiotics can increase the number of intestinal micro flora and enhance the growth rate of chicks. Additionally, these beneficial microorganisms can be applied as antibiotic-growth promoter substitutions in broilersâ�?�? diets. Todayâ�?�?s biotechnology advances allow the successful usage of probiotic preparations consisting of a number of strains of microorganisms. Present results suggest that the probiotic consortia have a positive impact on physiological conditions of broilers. The daily gain of the broiler chickens that had received the probiotics preparation was 6.02%, pre-slaughter weight was 13.56%, the carcass weight was 14.69% and carcass output was 0.75% higher in comparison with the chickens that had not received the preparation. Results showed that there was 4.96% more globulin of the �?³-globulin fraction in the blood of the experimental group of birds than of the control group. Serum cholesterol level was also reduced 17.6% in probiotic preparation treatment.
