This study aims to determine the effect of Liquid Smoke Addition in Coconut Water Multinutrient Block (CWMB) to quail on the nutrient consumption such as crude protein, crude fiber, crude fat and nitrogen-free extract. The treatments consisted of P0: control AkMB ration without liquid smoke addition; P1: CWMB ration with 0.25% liquid smoke, P2: CWMB ration with 0.50% liquid smoke, P3: CWMB ration with 0.75% liquid smoke. The data obtained were analyzed with Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 4 treatments and 4 replications. The results showed that the effect of liquid smoke in the CWMB ration significantly affected (P <0.05) the consumption of crude protein, crude fiber, crude fat and nitrogen-free extract. Based on these results, it can be concluded that the addition of liquid smoke in the CWMB ration at different levels affected the quail consumption and nitrogen-free extract. The best results obtained in the 0.75% liquid smoke supplementation (P3) that can increase consumption of crude protein and crude fiber in quails. However, the addition of liquid smoke at 0.25-0.75% to CWMB ration can increase quails crude fat consumption and nitrogen-free extract.
