AbstractThis study was carried out to know ability of Fenugreek seeds and Methionine on some biochemical parameters and both fertility & hatching aspects as well as GSH & MDA tissues levels in hatching quails were coming from eggs treatment with antioxidant materials noted above. The hatching birds reared on the universal basal diet and tap drinking water till 6th weeks age , each group reared alone depending on main group. The obtained results showed that the birds are coming from treated eggs with H2O2 suffering from deterioration in both fertility & hatching ratios as represented by (P ≤ 0.05) significant increase in embryonic mortality from fertilized eggs ratio, AST & ALT enzymes activities, Corticosterone hormone concentration (CS) and MDA tissues levels of pancreas & kidney and decrease in the fertilized & hatching eggs ratios comparing with control group. Fenugreek seeds & Methionine alone or with H2O2 Treatments caused a significant decrease in embryonic mortality from fertilized eggs ratio and significant increase in the fertilized & hatching eggs ratios and GSH tissues levels of (Heart , Liver , pancreas , kidney and ovary) comparing with H2O2 group. as well as Fenugreek seeds Treatment caused a significant increase in hatching eggs from fertilized eggs while embryonic mortality from fertilized eggs ratio was decreased significantly comparing with all the treatments as well as ALT enzyme activity and MDA ovary tissue was decreased comparing with control group. All the treatments caused an elevation in ALT enzyme activity while AST activity decreased in both Fenugreek seeds & Methionine with H2O2 Treatments comparing with control group. Methionine Treatment caused a significant increase in Corticosterone hormone concentration (CS) comparing with all the treatments as well as in MDA tissues level comparing with control group. The results represented indicates to the ability of antioxidant materials and their roles to enhance preservative and improvement of some biochemical parameters and both fertility & hatching aspects as well as antioxidants status in hatching birds.
