Abstract: Here we try to determine the effect of fermented leucaena leaf meal in the ration of Pitalah ducks. The research design used Randomized Completely Block of Design (RCBD) with 7 treatments, 3 replications and each replication consist of 6 laying duck. The treatment of this research were RO (control), R1 (10% leucaena leaf meal without fermentation), R2 (10% leucaena leaf meal fermented by Bacillus laterosporus), R3 (20% leucaena leaf meal fermented by Bacillus laterosporus), R4 (10% leucaena leaf meal fermented by Trichoderma viride), R5 (20% leucaena leaf meal fermented by Trichoderma viride), R6 (10% leucaena leaf meal fermented by Bacillus laterosporus+10% leucaena leaf meal fermented by Trichoderma viride). Parameter which are observed like: feed consumption, egg production, egg weight and feed conversion. The results showed that the ration treatment influenced different highly significant (p<0.01) for feed consumption, egg weight and egg mass ration treatment but influenced different significantly (p<0.05) on egg production and feed conversion treatment. The use of the product leucaena leaf fermentation with Trichoderma viride and Bacillus laterosporus as much as 20% in Pitalah ducks rations and R2 treatment increase feed consumption (897.47g/bird/week), egg production (59.66%), egg weight 56.23 g/grain, egg mass (234.86g/head/week) and feed conversion (3.58 for R6 treatment). Treatment ration (R2, R3, R4, R5 and R6) is better than control ration and can improve performance of Pitalah ducks.
