Abstract: During many years, the main objective of the poultry meat industry was to improve body weight and feed efficiency of the birds. However, in the modern poultry industry, there are other parameters that need to be taken into consideration such as low cholesterol, etc. deposition on the body. For this aim, an experiment was conducted to evaluation canola oil effects on the Iranian native Turkeys serum lipids and cholesterol. Ninety male Turkey chicks were randomly distributed into 3 experimental with three replicate for each groups. Diets were isonitrogenous and isoenergetic were given to Turkey chicks throughout four period of breeding (4th-8th, 8th-12th, 12th-16th and 16th-20th). The blood sample taken at the end of breeding period and serum values for triglycerides and total, High-Density-Lipoprotein (HDL) and LDL (calculated by Friedewald method). Data was analyzed with One Way (ANOVA) and means compared with Duncan test. For serum values were not found significantly different (p<0.05) in triglycerides and VLDL and in CHOL, LDL and HDL (p<0.05) were significantly different compared control group. Finally, our results shown that canola oil has a significant impact on lipid metabolism in native Turkey and could improve their serum lipid profile.
