The research aims was to know the effect of turmerin extract on broiler body weight. Material used in those research was  24 male broiler chicks CP 707 strain, and were acclimated during 1 week. Those chickens then allotted into 4 groups of treatment, with 6 replications in each group. Group of treatments were T0: without gave turmerin extract, T1: were given 200 mg/kgbw/day turmerin extract, T2: were given 400 mg/kgbw/day turmerin extract, T3: were given 600 mg/kgbw/day turmerin extract.
