Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine the level of effectiveness of cellulase enzymes isolated from Termites in feed on the productivity of intensively kept native chickens. The study used a randomized block design (CRBD) with 3 treatments and 15 groups as replications. Each group used 15 unsexed chickens aged five weeks. As for the feed treatment given as follows: P0): chickens that were given commercial feed without the addition of cellulase enzymes; P1): commercially fed chicken+cellulase enzyme as much as 12 g/kg of feed; and P2): commercially fed chicken+cellulase enzyme as much as 24 g/kg of feed, respectively. The results showed that cellulase enzyme supplementation isolated from Termin (Group P1 and P2) were significantly different (P<0.05) which could increase weight gain, feed consumption, and feed efficiency. It can be concluded that supplementation of cellulase enzymes (isolated from termites) into the ration can increase the productivity of native chickens in the growth phase.
