The aim of the present study to investigate effects of the Malathion on hematological of quail (Coturnix coturnix). Quail were treated orally with ¼ LD50 (25mg /kg B.W.) of Malathion for 28 days. Malathion decreased the body weight significantly at the end of experimental. There were statistically significantly decreased in hemoglobin content (Hb), red blood cells (RBC), hematocrit (Hct) and  increased the number of white blood cells (WBC) in Malathion treated- quail as compared to control. These result suggest that the affects of Malathion are does dependent.

Keywords: Hematological Parameters, Quail, Malathion, Body weight.
