The present experiment was conducted to investigate (1) the effects of different percentage of ration between day and night toward broiler production and (2) the best level of percentage of ration given during the day and night toward broiler production. This research was arranged with 5 treatments and 4 replications, in which each experimental unit consisted of 5 broilers. The data were analyzed by using Analysis of Variance in 5% significant degree. The result of this research showed that the different percentage of ration during the day and night affected (P< 0,05) body weight gain and water consumption, but did not significantly affect feeding consumption and feeding convertion. These results suggested that the ration which was given 30% during the day and 70% at night is the best treatment in influencing body weight gain.
