The article considers the issues of adaptive resources of broiler chicks under the industrial production conditions. A method of clinical diagnostics of adaptive resources of broiler chicks’ organism is proposed on the basis of the aggregate calculation and interpretation of LipoProtein Index (LPI) and Phospholipid Index (PI) when determining the intensity of the shunt metabolic processes and functional assistance of proteins and lipids in relation to body weight gain and viability in the technological environment. The use of LPI in determining the intensity of metabolism and assessment of body weight gain in broiler chicks will allow controlling the trend and rate of metabolism in chicks during the growing period for meat that can be used for timely adjustment of feed rations, informative clinical examination and increase, thereby, the profitability of the poultry farm. Phospholipid index, together with the lipoprotein index, allows characterizing the physiological condition of chicks during rearing for meat and produce timely adjustment of parameters of the applied feeding and maintenance technologies. Besides, these indices may also be used in the breeding work for the selection of chicks with a high metabolism, and respectively, accelerated growth of body weight and high viability. Thus, in the aggregate, lipoprotein index and phospholipid index allow diagnosing the adaptive resources of the broiler chicks’ organism under the technological environment conditions that is based on the physiological relationships of protein and lipid metabolites at the heart of functional systems of metabolism providing maintenance of homeostasis.
