The experiment was assigned to Completely Randomized Design with 5 treatmentsand 4 replications. The treatments were level of pearl grass extract added into the ration; 0 (R0, control),0.8 (R1), 1.6 (R2), 2.4 (R3) dan 3.2 (R4) gram per kilogram ration. After 3 weeks of age, litters weresprayed by Escherichia coli as much as 106 CFU/100 ml liquid agar. Then, chickens were kept until 6weeks of age. Result showed that there was no significant different among treatments groups on chickencarcass and there was no any adverse effect on liver and intestines.
