The study aims to learn the efficacy combination of Phyllanthus niruri and Androgaphis paniculata to improve the performance of laying hens infected with Escherichia coli pathogen. Fifty laying hens of Isa Brown strain were randomly divided into 5 treatments, each treatment was divided into 10 replications (n=10). Treatment P0-(control group without infected), P0+ (hens group infected with Avian Pathogenic’s Escherichia coli without given extract), P1 (hens group infected with Avian Pathogenic’s Escherichia coli with 10% Phyllanthus niruri extract and 30% Androgaphis paniculata), P2 (hens group infected with Avian Pathogenic’s Escherichia coli with 20% Phyllanthus niruri extract and 20% Androgaphis paniculata) and P3 (hens group infected with Avian Pathogenic’s Escherichia coli with 30% Phyllanthus niruri extract and 10% Androgaphis paniculata). Performances observed were feed consumption, Hen Day Production, eggs weight and feed conversion. Data analyzed by ANOVA and tested with the F test. The feed consumption showed in P1 was different from P3, P2, P0+ and P0-, P1 was different from P2 but not with P3, P0+, and P0-showed significantly different in each treatment. In P3 showed no differences with all treatments. The eggs weight showed different in P0+ for all treatments, while the other treatments in P1, P2, P3 and P0showed no differences. The feed conversion showed in P0+ was different for all treatments, while other treatments showed no difference. P0+ treatment compared to (P0-, P1, P2) was significantly different, P0+ treatment compared to P3 treatment was not significantly different, between P3 and P1 treatment was not significantly different, and between P1 and P2 with P0-was not significantly different, also between P3 with P2 and P0-treatments was significantly different. Supply of P. niruri extract. and A. paniculata in laying hens can improve the performance of laying hens infected with Escherichia coli pathogen.
