The use of citric acid in drinking water can suppress the growth of pathogenic bacteria and increase that of non-pathogenic. Dextrose is a monosaccharide from the end product of digestion of carbohydrates to produce energy. In this study, 15 days old 50 male broiler chickens were randomly divided into five treatment groups in the five replication of 2 chickens. Combination of citric acid -dextrose in drinking water could increase the percent yield of broiler carcasses and increased villi of duodenum and jejunum, but could not increase the ileal villi of broilers.
