Abstract—The present  study evaluates  the growth performance and hematological attribute  of experimental  free-range chicken, Gallus  gallus  domesticus  Linn.  (Black Australorp x Barred  Plymouth  Rock) fed formulated  diets of  fermented and non-fermented  duckweed meal (Lemna minor  Linn.). Three isonitrogenous formulated treatment diets are  prepared: 0% duckweed (control), 10% Fermented Duckweed Meal (FDM), and 10% Duckweed Meal (DM) inclusions. Five chickens (mean  weight  = 202.5 g) per replicate are  used  in  a three-month  feeding trial under  single factorial experiment.  Chickens  fed FDM diet  have  significantly (P  < 0.05) higher mean final weight (1,182.8 ± 42.13 g) as compared to those  fed  DM diet (1,070.4 ± 84.61  g). The mean final weight of control and FDM is significantly  homogenous (P  >  0.05). Variation in feed conversion ratio  among treatments is significant, with the highest mean value being observed in DM (5.85 ± 0.52).  The average daily gain  in weight is higher in  DM  and is comparable with the control  (P  > 0.05). Treatment diets have  no significant effect  on the observed hematological variables.
