To study the effect of herb ginger powder on performance, carcass characteristics and blood parameters of broilers used from 192 broiler chicks (Ross ) in a completely randomized design with 4 treatments and 4 replicates ( each replicate of 12 chicks ). All treatments, including different levels of ginger powder ratios of 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5 percent respectively called T1, 2T, T3 and T4 that were added to the basal diet for 42 days. The results showed that increasing levels of dietary herb ginger powder caused a significant reduction in food intake and weight gain in broilers. So that the entire period, birds fed diets containing 1% lower feed intake and diet ginger powder 0.5% of total period of greatest weight gain were regarded ginger powder. Best and worst feed conversion was significantly related to treatment with 1% ginger and control group. Rise to the level of the herb ginger powder 1.5 percent, decrease abdominal fat in broiler chickens will increase the percentage of ham and stock, while on other carcass parameters were not significantly affected. The results showed that the blood parameters of glucose, HDL and LDL levels treated 1.5 percent ginger powder showed no significant difference compared to control. And other parameters such as cholesterol and triglycerides in number (in treatments 1 and 1.5 percent) powdered ginger to the control group showed a tangible decrease was not significant. From this experiment we can conclude that treatment with 1% (T3) and 1.5 percent (T4) ginger powder showed better performance and carcass characteristics and blood parameters in broilers
