This study was carried out to investigate the correlation between the fatty liver syndrome and som,e blood values in broilers fed with rations containing corn, sunflower oil and animal fat.

Totally 150 day- old Arbro- 7 female chicks were used in the experiment. There were three groups each containing 50 chicks. The experiment lasted in 56 days.

At the end of the experiment, a severe case of fatty livers was observed in the group fed with corn based ration. The highest SGOT (P < 0.05) and FF A values were fo und in this group.

In the other two groups fed differently with ration containing sunflower oil and the animal fat, the lesser amount of lipid infiltrations were observed. The total serum cholesterol levels in the group fed with animal fat were higher than the other groups (P<0.0l).

As a result, it can be deduced that the determination of SGOT values as well as the histological investigation would be helpfull in the diagnosis of subclinical fatty liver syndrome.
