Abstract—The aims of this research was to find out the influence of complete feed based on fermented local ingredients to the exterior and interior quality of pegagan duck eggs. Complete feed based on fermented local ingredients (C.F.B.F.L) with commercial feed was mixed every weeks in accordance with the level of treatment. Feeds were arranged with protein content (18%) and metabolism energy (2900 kcal/kg) in accordance with recommendations of NRC. As many as sixty pegagan duck aged 4 months were used in the study. Completely random design was used in this research, with 5 treatments and 4 replicates. Each of these repeats were placed 3 ducks and kept for 3 months. The treatment consisted of R0 (100% commercial feed), R1 (25% C.F.B.F.L + 75% commercial feed), R3 (50% C.F.B.F.L + 50% commercial feed), R4 (75% C.F.B.F.L + 25% commercial feed), R5 (100% C.F.B.F.L). The results showed that the giving of complete feed based on fermented local ingredients effected the value of egg index, yolk egg score, thickness of eggshell, and wholeness and cleanliness of eggs. It was concluded that the increasing level of giving complete feed based on fermented local ingredients, the higher value of egg index and yolk egg score, but the thickness of eggshell was getting lower.

Index Terms—Exterior and interior eggs quality, local ingredients, Pegagan duck.
