50 broiler chickens were used in 4 feed treatments. The control group (P0) without SSF, treatment group with 30% SSF (P1), 35% (P2), 40% (P3), 45% (P4). The villi height of jejunum on day 3 showed a signicant difference (p> 0.05) between the control and P2 with P3 and P4, while P1 was signicantly different from other treatments. On the 6th day, the villus, height measurements showed a signicant difference between the control with P1, P2 and P3 but both of these treatments were not signicantly different from P4. On the 9th day of measurement, the villi showed a signicant difference between controls with P1, P2, P3, and P4, whereas in P1 it was signicantly different from P4 but not signicantly different from P2 and P3. In total, growth of villi height showed a signicant difference between control and P1 with P2, P3, and P4. Amylase enzyme activity showed signicant differences between treatment 4, 2 and 3. While the examination of lipase and protease enzyme activity in broiler chickens showed no signicant difference in all treatments.
