The experiment was conducted on one hundred turkey birds to study the influence of age on the blood biochemical parameters. Turkey birds with the age ranging between 8-10, 11-13, 14-16, 17-19 and above 26 weeks were categorized as Group I, II, III, IV and V, respectively each containing 20 turkey birds which includes males and females. Significantly, higher values of Serum Total Protein and Serum Albumin in adults than younger birds might be associated with the advancement of age because of quick somatic. It was observed that age has partial influence on serum globulin concentration especially in early age of 16 weeks. There was no influence of age on Serum Glucose, HDL cholesterol and Serum triglycerides. Age plays an important role in the concentration of Serum total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol with almost an increasing and clear increasing trend; respectively up to 19 weeks which declined thereafter .
