The Tongkat ali was given to Kampung Chickens by force feeding using the syringe. Sperm parameter with respect to ejaculate volume, colour, gross motility, individual motility, sperm concentration, proportion of live and dead spermatozoa and proportion of abnormal morphology has been evaluated before and after the feeding of Tongkat ali. The effectives of Tongkat ali has proven well when supplemented daily on Kampung Chickens but giving less effectives result when supplemented 3 times a week. All the semen parameters with respect to ejaculate volume, colour, gross motility, individual motility, sperm concentration, proportion of live and dead spermatozoa and proportion of abnormal morphology has been evaluated.
