Black Soldier Fly Larvae Chicken Feed Supplement Study

The research project is designed to determine whether feeding egg-laying hens a diet supplemented with black soldier fly larva (BSFL) will cause their eggs to taste or look different. This poultry project may lead to improved poultry health while reducing the amount of corn and soy used in chicken feed.
