Abstract: In the present study the growth and reproductive organ structural differences in cocks fed a diet containing 1% red hot pepper (10 g/kg diet) from the first day of age were investigated. In cocks fed the experimental diet body weight gain decreased; testes weight, length, width and wall thickness of the tubuli seminiferi convoluti increased; and the completion of spermatogenic cell serial formation took place earlier compared to the control group.
