A study was conducted to evaluate the effect of dietary supplementation of organic chromium on carcass characteristics and haemato-biochemical profile in broiler chickens. Two hundred, day old broiler chicks of Cobb-400 strain were divided into four treatment groups with 5 replicates of 10 chicks in each and were assigned to four iso-nutritive diets, viz., T1: Control (Feed without CrPro supplementation), T2: CrPro supplementation in feed @ 400 µg/kg, T3: CrPro supplementation in feed @ 800 µg/kg and T4: CrPro supplementation in feed @ 1200 µg/kg. The feeding experiment was carried out for 42 days. Dietary supplementation of organic chromium in broiler chicken diet had non-significant (P>0.05) effect on carcass traits, dressing percentage and weights of liver, heart, gizzard, kidney and spleen in broiler chickens. No significant (P>0.05) effect was found in levels of haemoglobin, packed cell volume, total leukocyte and erythrocyte count by the organic chromium supplementation. Significant (P
