Abstract: Environmental conditions of commercial broiler house, such as temperature, relative humidity and lightening, on the performance of broiler in winter and summer months in Kahramanmaras province was determined in this experiment. After 42 days of rearing period average of temperature, relative humidity and light intensity of poultry house were measured in summer months 30.56-26.60°C, 32.22-49.33% and 55.1 wat m-2 in winter months 29.5-13.93°C, 67.55-79.15% and 49.33 watt m-2, respectively. Lost of live weight was found to be 23 and 58.9% in summer and in winter months, respectively. As a result insufficient poultry house environmental conditions were detected in broiler enterprise which reduces the economic efficiency of enterprise.
