Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of Binahong Leaf Meal (BLM) as a feed additive on the ileal bacteria and jejunal histomorphology of broiler chickens. Methodology: One hundred and ninety-two day old male broiler chickens were divided into six treatments groups of eight chickens each; each experiment was performed four times. The treatment groups were as follows: T0 (control negative), T1 (control positive; tetracycline 50 ppm), T2 (1% BLM), T3 (2% BLM), T4 (4% BLM) and T5 (8% BLM). Results: The addition of BLM significantly increased the amount of E. coli ileal bacteria, jejunum height and depth of jejunum crypts across groups T0-T5 (p<0.01). Addition of BLM significantly increased the amount of ileal lactic acid bacteria and width of jejunum villi across groups T0-T5 (p<0.05). Conclusion: The addition of 2% BLM increased the amount of E. coli ileal bacteria and ileal Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) and increased villi height and width and jejunum crypt depth in broiler chickens.
