The purpose of this study was to know the effect of probiotic supplementation to feed consumption, egg production, egg weight, feed conversion, feed efficiency and egg cholesterol. 80 quails of Coturnixcoturnixjaponica at 14 weeks of age were completely randomized into five treatments, each treatment consisted of four replication and each replication consisted by five heads. T0 as a control without probiotic supplementation, T1 with the addition of 1 ml probiotic/kg of feed, T2 with the addition of 2 ml probiotic/kg of feed, T3 with the addition 1 ml probiotic/liter drinking water and T4 with the addition of 2 ml probiotic/liter drinking water. The results showed that the probiotic supplementation gave a significant effect (p<0,05) to feed consumption, feed conversion, feed efficiency and egg cholesterol, but couldn't effect (p>0,05) egg weight and Quail Day Production. T4 showed the highest significantly different in feed conversion, feed efficiency and egg cholesterol. It could be better to give 2 ml probiotic containing Enterobacteria spp., Bacillus spp., Cellulomonas spp., and Actinomyces spp. in drinking water for the best result.
