The research was carried out to study the effect of fermented diets on body weight gains, carcass, and abdominal fat of Bali duck aged 2-8 weeks. The research used a completely randomized design (CRD) with three treatments in six replicates. There were fourth birds with homogenuous body weught in each repli-cates. The experimental diets for the finishing period (aged 2-8 weeks) were formulated to 17% crude protein and 2900 kkal ME/kg as a control diet (A), birds with offered 50% fermented diets (B), and birds with offered 100% fermented diets (C), respectively. Experimental diets and drinking water were provided ad libitum during the entire experimental period (aged 2-8 weeks). Result of this experiment showed that final body weight, body weight gains, slaughter weight, carcass weight, and feed efficiency, boht in treatments B and C were increased significantly different (P<0,05) than control, but percentage of abominal fat were decreased (P<0,05) significantly different than control (A). It was concluded that birds were offered 50- 100% fermented diets were increased body weight gains, carcasss weight, and feed efficiency, but decreas-ing abdominal-fat of Bali duck aged 2-8 weeks.
