Abstract: Many studies investigate the use of noni (Morinda citrifolia L.) fruit as natural additive in broiler diets but there is a lack of information on the e ect of Noni in diets on local chickens. The current study aims to determine the effect of Noni fruit extract supplemented with Cu and Zn on production performance of Sentul Chickens. A total of 100 birds of Grey Sentul Chickens aged one day were assigned randomly into 5 treatment groups, each with four replicates and each group treatment contained 5 birds in a completely randomized design. The treatments were basal diet added with different level of Noni fruit extract supplemented by inorganic minerals (CuSO4 and ZnO). The results showed that the addition of Noni fruit extract supplemented with Cu and Zn significantly increased feed intake (in Month II), body weight and body weight gain (in Month III) and carcass weight. However, the treatments reduced the height and width of villi in the intestinal organ of Sentul chickens. The study indicates that increasing Noni fruit extract in diets at a certain level had positive effects on chicken performance.
