Abstract: The use of organic acids in poultry production is increasing day by day due to its beneficial effect. This review explain the effect of organic acids on the performance, gut health, nutrient digestibility, egg production, Carcass, biochemical and haematological status of birds. Due to demand of meat and eggs, production should be increased so antibiotics were used to prevent birds from diseases. Antibiotics use in poultry production is prohibited since 2012. Therefore, search for its alternative was start and essential oil, probiotics and organic acids give good results. Organic acids act as antifungal and anticoccidial agent which inhibit growth of pathogenic organisms and increase the digestibility. Organic acids in proper dose rate improve growth, health status and decrease mortality.
