<jats:p>The aim of our study was to determine the effects of supplementation of agrimony extract (<jats:italic>Agrimonia eupatoria</jats:italic> L.) and a combination of agrimony with sage extract (<jats:italic>Salvia officinalis</jats:italic> L.) to water during the fattening period of broiler chickens on selected biochemical and antioxidant indicators in blood, and on the nutritional composition and oxidative stability of meat. A total of 117 Cobb 500 chicks were randomly divided on the day of hatching into three groups (n = 39 in each) and fattened for 42 days. All groups were fed the same diets. In experimental group A water was supplemented with agrimony ex...
