Fed consisted of yellow corn 60% and dried trifolium Alexandrun 22% they housed in door, the main biochemical serum analysis recorded were hyperphosphatemia hypoc-alcemia and decrease the activities of Alkaline phosphatase significant increase of cortisol hormone. Urea, creatinine, glucose. P.C.V, and hemoglobin in blood. The results indicated that rations containing high level of com caused decreased digestion coefficient of all nutrients for both growing goat kids (healthy and Rickets). Also Rickets disease decreased digestibility, and nitrogen balance for kids fed two experimental rations. This study recommended that using balanced diets affect decreasedsignificantly in digestion coefficient, feed intake and nitrogen balance.
