Sentul chicken is recognized as a dual purpose local chicken breed and it is very potential because it growth rapidly and it has high eggs productivity.

Turmeric is one of the medicinal plants used as an herbal medicine containing atsiri oil (volatile oil) and curcuminoid. The aim of this research was to evaluate the hen-day production and thequality of Sentul’s egg added turmeric meal in the ration. Sixty Sentul Chickens at 42 weeks of age were used. The data were analyzed using a Completely Randomized Design consisted of four treatments, which were 0, 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3 percent of turmeric meal, and each treatment was repeated five times.
