The research was conducted to examine the effect of fed with calcium soap made from palm fatty acid distillate (Ca-PFAD) in the ration on the performance and blood lipid prifile of male bali ducks (Anas sp). The design used in this study was a completely randomized design with 4 treatments and 6 replications, and each experimental unit used 10 male bali ducks aged two weeks with homogeneous body weight. The four types of treatment, namely: A: ration without added Ca-PFAD as a control; B: feed with the addition of 1.5% Ca-PFAD; C: feed with the addition of 3.0% Ca-PFAD; and D: feed with the addition of 4.5% Ca-PFAD, respectively. The rations were prepared isocalorically (ME: 2900 kcal/kg) and isoprotein (CP:17%). The results showed that the administration of 1.5-4.5% Ca-PFAD in the diet significantly (P<0.05) increased feed consumption, final body weight, body weight gain, dry matter and organic matter digestibility, and feed efficiency compared to control. On the other hand, decreased significantly (P<0.05) on total cholesterol, total pad-fat, and abdominal fat in ducks. It can be concluded that 1.5-4.5% Ca-PFAD in feed can improve performance of male bali and decreased total cholesterol concentration in serum of bali ducks.
