Languages of publication
Morinda citrifolia (Noni) is a common plant used as alternative to synthetic feed additive in poultry production. The study was aimed to determine the effect of Noni juice in drinking water on production and egg quality of Sentul Chickens. Sentul Chicken is an indigenous chicken of Indonesia that has dual purpose potential. A total of 20 birds of female Grey Sentul Chickens aged 22 weeks were reared for eight weeks. The observed variables were hen day production, yolk and albumen indexes, as well as cholesterol content of yolk egg. The results showed that addition of Noni fruit juice to drinking water significantly increased egg production and reduced the yolk index. Moreover, the treatments reduced the cholesterol of yolk of Sentul Chickens. The study reveals that increasing levels of Noni fruit juice in drinking water also had positive effects on egg production and egg quality. Further studies are, however, needed to have better understanding about the use of Noni fruit in enhancing egg production and egg quality of Sentul chickens.
