Two hundred and twenty four Japanse quail females ( 42 days old ) were randomly fed control diet and with thirteen diets contained two levels ( 0.4 and 0.8% ) of each local mineral muds: M – T, K and A. S. B with or without 2.0mg of AF/kg diet for 8 weeks. The statistical analysis showed significant decrease ( P ≤ 0.05 ) the value of the haematological and serum biochemical parameters and some blood enzymes activity ( GOT, GPT and ALP ) of the quail females fed diet contaminated with 2.0mg of AF/kg diet. The addition of the natural adsorbents ( M–T,K and A. B. S ) led to significant correct the abnormality of the haematological, serum biochemical parameters and activity of some blood enzymes except the value of MCHC by addiding 0.8% of M – T or K, mud noted there were no significant differences between the efficiency the three kinds of natural muds used in this study.
