The present study revealed the plasma enzyme activities viz. serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT), serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and electrolytes viz. sodium (Na), potassium (K), chloride (Cl), calcium (Ca), phosphorus (Pi) and magnesium (Mg) of indigenous chicken, Sikhar of Mizoram in six different age groups viz. group I (1 month old), II (2 months old), III (4 months old), IV (6 months old), V (8 months old) and VI (10 months old). Each group comprised of 12 birds and blood was collected from each birds. Activities of SGPT and ALP increased and decreased respectively with age while SGOT was not affected by age. Na and Cl were highest in group II and K fluctuated in different groups. Ca had no significant change in different groups while Pi decreased with age. Birds of group IV and VI had higher Mg than other groups.
