ABSTRACT

This study aims to determine the effect of combinations of fountain clerodendrum and avocado seed flour enhanced with nanotechnology on growth performance, intestinal profile, and microbial population of Lohman chickens. A total 256 Lohmann chicken were used on the experimental diets. The Fountain clerodendrum and avocado seed flour were enhanced with nanotechnology 500 mm. The two-way nested Anova with eight treatments and four replication was employed, with each experimental unit consisting of eight Lohmann broiler chickens. The treatments consisted of B1T0 = basal diet, B1T1 = basal diet + 0.4% avocado seed flour, B1T2 = basal diet + 0.8% avocado seed flour, B1T3 = basal diet + 1.2% avocado seed flour, B2T0 = basal diet, B2T1 = basal diet + 0.4% avocado seed flour enhanced with nanotechnology, B2T2 = basal diet + 0.8% avocado seed flour enhanced with nanotechnology, B2T3 = basal diet + 1.2% avocado seed flour enhanced with nanotechnology. If there is significant effect (p < 0.05), the analysis continued with least significant differences (LSD). The result showed significantly difference (p < 0.01) on villus height and significant difference (p < 0.05) on microbial population. In contrast, the result showed no significantly difference (p > 0.05). In conclusion, combinations of nano-fountain clerodendrum and avocado seed flour help to increasing villus height and adverse microbial on Lohmann broiler chickens.
