The experiment concerning the response of lead (Pb) in liver and kidneys of growing ducks given phytate in diet and lead (Pb) in drinking water was conducted at the Faculty of Animal Husbandry and the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science, Padjadjaran University. The experiment was carried out to growing group of local duck. The experimental design of a completely randomized design with a factorial pattern 3x3 was applied. Three dietary treatments containing different levels of phytate and 3 levels of lead in drinking water with 3 replication were applied to growing ducks and each combination consisted of five. There was no interaction between the administration of Pb in drinking water and phytate content in diet. Administration of Pb in drinking water up to 90 ppm increased Pb in the liver and kidneys, while the phytate content up to 2,18% in the diet did not provide a decrease of Pb content in liver and kidneys of growing ducks.
Key words: phytate, lead, liver, kidneys and duck
