 Chicken is an animal that can provide many benefits for human life, meat and eggs can be used as food to fulfill the needs of human food, the excrement can be made fertilizer, and frequently its be used as a farm animal. Although it can provide many benefits, but for chicken farmers, the maintenance of chicken meet some obstacles that must be faced such as disease, poor environmental sanitation, and the production of eggs are declining. From some of the obstacles that have been mentioned, the most frequently encountered are animals infected with the disease. Based on the results of interviews that have been done to some chicken farmers, it can be said that the knowledge of chicken farmers against chicken disease and its handling is still very lacking. But the number of experts who understand and know about the type of chicken disease and the way of handling is limited, then it takes an expert system that can simulate knowledge and understanding of experts to overcome the problem. Based on the study of the libraries, the method suitable for use in the expert system is the Dempster shafer method by processing the value of belief in a disease. Dempster shafer method is a method used to calculate uncertainty due to the addition or reduction of new facts that will change the existing rules. Based on tests in 40 cases using an expert system applying the Dempster Shafer method, obtained the percentage of diagnostic compatibility result given by experts and system is 95%.
