The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of chitosan on the Pb content in the liver and bone of quail exposed to Pb-acetate in drinking water. Quail was kept in experimental cage of Poultry House, meanwhile, slaughtering and sampling were conducted in the Laboratory of Animal Physiology and Biochemistry, Faculty of Animal Husbandry, Padjadjaran University; furthermore, samples were analyzed in the Laboratory of Dairy Cattle, Bogor Agricultural Institute. The Experiment based on an experimental design with five treatments and five replications. Chitosan was given in ration as follows P0 (0 ppm), P1 (50 ppm), P2 (100 ppm), P3 (150 ppm) and P4 (200 ppm). Orthogonal polynomial test was used to see the trend of increased or decreased as a result of treatment response. The result of this study showed decreased levels Pb in liver and bone of quail along with increasing doses of chitosan given. The best result obtained at P4 (200 ppm) with the lowest Pb content in liver and bone of quail.
