This study was conducted to determine the effect of herbals on the production performance and gastrointestinal health of layer hens. There were 50 layer hens used and assigned randomly into two different types of diets namely, basal diet (T0) and basal diet+3ml herbals/1000g ration (T1) with each treatment consisting of 25 birds. Meanwhile, the herbals supplemented into the poultry feed consisted of tumeric, sambiloto leaves, soursop leaves, ginger, and lemongrass. Consequently, the T-test results showed that supplementation of herbals on treatment 1 (T1) statistically had no significant difference with treatment control (T0). The study concluded that the herbal mix could be used as a feed supplementation in a layer basal diet.
