ABSTRACT

This research evaluated the utilization of BSF oil from three distinct phases (larval phase, pre-pupal phase, and pupal phase) as a feed additive on the production performance and histomorphology of the ileum of broiler chickens. The BSF (Black Soldier Fly) oil isolation process was initiated using the Soxhlet method. Subsequently, 160 broiler chickens were utilized in the research. An experimental design in the form of a completely randomized design with five treatments and four replications was employed, involving eight broiler chickens per treatment per replication. The feed treatments were formulated as follows: T0 (basal feed), T1 (basal feed + 0.5% bacitracin), T2 (basal feed + 0.5% BSF larval oil), T3 (basal feed + 0.5% BSF pre-pupal oil), T4 (basal feed + 0.5% BSF pupal oil). The data were collected and analyzed using analysis of variance (ANOVA). The experimental data on the use of BSF oil as a feed additive yielded significantly different results (p < 0.05) for the feed conversion ratio (FCR) and performance index (IP) of broiler chickens. In summary, the use of different BSF oils has the potential to be employed as a natural feed additive for broiler chickens.
