Broiler chickens is a type of chicken that has a fast growth rate and requires large amounts of nutrients absorbed from feed. Absorption of nutrients in the feed requires the function of a good digestive tract to optimize the digestive process. The digestive process also requires optimal time in absorption of feed nutrients called the digesta rate. The purpose of this study was to determine the right level of addition aloe vera powder to the length of digestive tract and the rate of digesta broiler. This study used a completely randomized design with 4 treatments and 4 replications, namely P0: feed without aloe vera powder (control), P1: feed + 0.075% aloe vera powder, P2: feed + 0,1% aloe vera powder and P3: feed + 0,125% aloe vera powder. The treatment had a significant effect on the jejenum length and digesta rate. But it had no significant effect on the duodenum length and the ileum lenght. The jejenum length was significantly different in treatment P1 of 85.50 cm and P3 of 83.75 cm when compared to treatment P0 of 73.25 cm. Digesta rate was significantly different from the P3 treatment was 259 minutes when compared to the control treatment (P0) 200 minutes. The results of the study showed that the addition of aloe vera powder with the best level was at the level of 0.125% (P3) which optimizes the jejenum length and the rate of digesta broiler. The conclusion is that the addition of aloe vera powder with a level of 0.125% in broiler feed can optimize the length of jejenum and increase the rate of digestion
