Currently, the livestock industry around the world is not provided with the necessary amount of feed rich in proteins and biologically active substances (BAS) of natural origin. These can be provided with alternative sources like microalgae with chlorella holding a special place due to its unique chemical composition. This paper introduces the research results on the effect of chlorella suspension on the productive and reproductive qualities of geese of various technological groups. It reveals the optimal doses to be included in the poultry diet. Thus, application of chlorella suspension in the feed rations of geese has increased their safety, live weight, egg production and hatching, improved quality indicators of goose semen production, incubation results, yield of commercial replacement birds, indicators of natural resistance, as well as the digestibility of nutrients at lower feed costs per unit of production and higher goose meat quality.
