Banana peel application on heat exposed chicken was conducted by using 80 broiler chickens aged 21 days in complete randomize design method. Four treatment that was given based on the level of banana peel ration are R0=0%, R1=10%, R2=20% and R3=30%. Each of the treatment was repeated 5 times to 4 chickens for each repetition. The study was held for 21 days. The observed variables are haematocrite value, haemoglobin level, erythrocyte, MCHC level, ration consumption, nitrogen retention and body weight gain. The result of this study showed that haematological parameters between the treatment was insignificant (P>0.5). The chicken body weight gain on R0 (=978.00 g) was significantly higher compared to others (R1=799.50 g, R2=810.00 g and R3=638.25 g). In conclusion, application of banana peel on 20% level to heat exposed chicken can increase nitrogen retention but it is not follow by body weight gain while haematological parameters for all treatment is remained the same.
