Abstract

An experiment on the use of Carica papaya leaf meal to increase the production and quality of Sentul chicken eggs was carried out in Jelekong village, Baleendah Subdistrict, Bandung District.  Seventy five Sentul Chicken at 36 weeks of age were used. Data were analyzed using a Completely Randomized Design consisted of five treatments including Carica papaya leaf meal of 0, 2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10%. The result indicated that the use of Carina papaya leaf meal in ration up to 10 percent did not significantly affect egg production, egg weight, Haugh unit value, and shell thickness, but the use of        10 percent Carina papaya leaf meal in ration significantly affected color yolk score.

Abstract

The optimum performance of duck farm can be achieved by providing them with good quality rations. Rations with good digestibility will increase the productivity due to large amount intake of nutrients. Chitosan is type of animal fibre which assisted the growth of useful microbes in digestive system. Addition of chitosan in cattle rations will improve the ecologic of duck digestive system to be more conducive.  The aimed of the research was to evaluate rations digestibility with the addition of chitosan. The research was used completely randomized design with 4 treatments and 5 repetitions. Each repetition consists of 2 ducks. The treatments are R0 stands for rations without chitosan and R1-R3 with addition of chitosan 0.5%, 2% and 2.5% respectively. Parameter measured were dried matter digestibility, organic matter and crude protein. Data processing was conducted by using SAS Windows 16. Result showed chitosan addition at 0.5% and 2.5% gave dried matter digestibility and crude protein does not higher than control (P>0.05) while chitosan addition at 2% gave result lower than control. Organic matter digestibility displays balanced in value.Keywords: Chitosan, Dried matter digestibility, organic matter, crude protein, rations.
