Abstract: Broiler poultry is one of the many jobs carried out by the Indonesian people. The industrial revolution changes many aspects of broiler poultry, especially technology developments that made work easier. One of them is broiler poultry using a closed- house system. This system has several advantages, including temperature and humidity that can be adjusted to the broilers. Conventional feeding systems are also a problem. Therefore, in this study, a broiler feeding system was designed for a closed-house system. The development of an automatic chicken feeding machine can be very useful to the growth of the farming industry, this automatic broiler feeding system has three main components, feed hopper which works as chicken feed storage, screw conveying screw conveyor is useful for transfer of feed material from feed and motor drive systems for drive the screw conveyor. Based on the results of analysis and testing, the automatic feeding system can function properly and can distribute the feed properly. The AC motor has a power of 0.75 HP. The V-pulley is used for power transmission with a size of 2 inches and 8 inches. And the shaft that is connected to the spiral auger has a diameter of 20 mm to support the shaft force of the conveyor screw.
