This study aimed to determine the effect of sugar apple leaf extract (Annona squamosa l) on production performance, carcass and digestibility of roles layer tife. The experimental design used was a completely randomized design (CRD) with 5 treatments and 4 replications, where each replication used 3 male laying hens aged 2 weeks so that a total of 60 chickens were used. The treatment was the administration of sugar apple leaf extract through drinking water, namely 0%, 1%, 2%, 3% and 4% for treatment E0, E1, E2, E3 and E4 respectively. The variables observed were nutrient digestibility and performance.The results showed that the administration of sugar apple leaf extract through drinking water had no effect on ration consumption, Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) and initial weight, but could increase body weight gain, final weight, dry matter digestibility, protein digestibility and energy digestibility. Based on the results of the study, it can be concluded that the administration of sugar apple leaf extract at a level of 2-4% can increase nutrient digestibility and the performance of laying hens.
