This study was conducted at Poultry Farm of Animal Resources Dept., College of Agriculture, University of AL-Qasim Green to investigate the effect of adding Lycopene to the ration on some blood serum biochemical traits of broiler Ross 308 . Use the 90 broiler chicks Ross 308 day-old were randomly assigned to three treatments (by 3 replicates per treatment 10 chicks per replicate),  and treatments were as follows : control group without adding lycopene to the diet, add lycopene by 250 mg / kg feed ( first treatment)  and add  lycopene by 500 mg / kg feed ( second treatment) . The experiment included a study of the following characteristics: concentrations of glucose , protein , cholesterol and triglycerides .

The results indicated that the addition of lycopene by 250  and 500 mg / kg feed to broiler diet led to a significant improvement in blood serum biochemical traits of broiler  .
