Abstract

50 broiler chickens were used in 4 feed treatments. The control group (P0) without SSF, treatment group with 30% SSF (P1), 35% (P2), 40% (P3), 45% (P4). The villi height of jejunum on day 3 showed a significant difference (p> 0.05) between the control and P2 with P3 and P4, while P1 was significantly different from other treatments. On the 6th day, the villus, height measurements showed a significant difference between the control with P1, P2 and P3 but both of these treatments were not significantly different from P4. On the 9th day of measurement, the villi showed a significant difference between controls with P1, P2, P3, and P4, whereas in P1 it was significantly different from P4 but not significantly different from P2 and P3. In total, growth of villi height showed a significant difference between control and P1 with P2, P3, and P4. Amylase enzyme activity showed significant differences between treatment 4, 2 and 3. While the examination of lipase and protease enzyme activity in broiler chickens showed no significant difference in all treatments.
