In electromagnetic spectrum, microwaves radiation spans a range from 300 MHz to 300 GHz. These radiationshave been used in many devices that are used by humanbeings.They may be very harmful for living organisms. Bad effects of microwaves have also been investigated for several crops. This work investigates the effect of microwaves treated water and microwaves warmedfeeds to thebroiler chicken. 1100 Watt and 2450MHz power microwaveoven was used to irradiate chicken’s drinking water and feeds.During investigations, many parameterssuch as temperature, humidity, quality of water and food were well maintained.In conclusion, measuring body weight may be a useful tool to estimate growth potential rather than using body height and length. The broilerused microwavedradiated water and feeds shows better growth rate as compared to others that used normal water and feeds and that used boiled water and warmed feeds.
