Samples used were 33 female quail in production phase divided into three groups. Diets contain of maize oil inclusion (0%, 4%, 6%) in feed adlibitum were administrated to quail for eighth weeks. Parameters are viscera organs weight and folicullar hierarchy. Data were analyzed by ANOVA Test. Result showed that heart weight and hierachy folicullar were signicantly inuenced (P <0.05) on group P2, whereas there was no changes on gastrointestinal tract, liver, ovary, and viscera weight. However, all the internal organs were in the good condition and work optimally.
