The average percentage of chest carcass component for the treatment R0 (34,1%), R1 (34,5%), R2 (35,1%) and R3 (35,6%). The average percentage of abdominal fat for thetreatmentR0 (1,49%), R1 (1,46%), R2 (1,13%) and R3 (1,07%). It can be concludedthat theuse ofbinahongleaf powderup1.5% levelasfeedadditivein the rationresulted inthe best resultsonthe physicalquality ofbroilercarcasses.
