An attempt was made to investigate the effect of use Magnetic water and feed restriction time on carcasses of broiler chicks. 216 unsexed chicks of Ross 308 strain at one day aged were used in the study. Treatment was T1: Continuous feeding + Tap water. T2: Continuous feeding + magnetic water. T3: feed withdrawal [no feeding from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (8 hours)] + Tap water. T4: Feed withdrawal [no feeding from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (8 hours)] + Magnetic water. T5: Continuous feed two days and withdrawal one day + Tap water. T6: Continuous feed two days and withdrawal one day + magnetic water. Significantly affected (P> 0.05) of magnetic water was observed on relative weight of breast heart, liver. However, this treatment significantly decrease (P> 0.05) the relative weight of abdominal fat, as compared to tap water. Significantly reductions were recorded (P<0.05) in relative weight of breast, Leg, liver, heart, gizzard , abdominal , fat. On the other hands significantly increase (P > 0.05) was found in relative weight of bursa gland of two restriction treatments, as compared to continuous feed (control). Significant affect (P>0.05) was found between water quality and time restriction feed period on the characteristics of carcasses broiler
