Poultry

Insect ingredients boost growth, support healthy eggs and feathers, and provide excellent nutrition for poultry.

Black soldier fly larvae provide high-performance, sustainable, and natural nutrients for poultry.

Black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) ingredients

Insects are an ancient nutrient source that have been part of the animal diet for millennia and are now increasingly recognized as a premium option in terms of quality and sustainability.

 

As a complete protein, BSFL contain essential amino acids, lauric acid, calcium, and prebiotic fiber which improves gut and immune health. Feed studies including insects also show improved palatability and behavioral benefits.

Nutrient Ranges

  • Protein: 41%

  • Fat: 26%

  • Fiber: 10%

  • Moisture: 5%

  • Calcium: 8%

  • Phosphorus: 5%

  • Ash: 10%

Healthy Fats

BSFL have high lauric fatty acid content. Lauric acid has been shown to have natural antimicrobial effects. This is a very unique trait that BSFL fats offer, and in the future, may be part of the solution to limit the amount of antibiotics used in farming (ScienceDirect).

Birds Love BSFL

To encourage natural feeding behavior simply scatter on the ground (MDPI).

Improved Immunity

BSFL improve gut and immune health while providing antioxidants, antipathogenic, antibacterial, and antifungal properties (NIH).

Boosting Gut Microbiomes

BSFL fiber content ranges between 3-5%, which may be beneficial to poultry gut flora  microbiomes. Strong gut flora with a healthy dose of good bacteria also means stronger immune system (MDPI).

More Nutritious than Mealworms

Black soldier fly larvae for chickens have 85X more calcium than dried mealworms, 36-42% protein, 25-30% healthy fat, phosphorus, fiber, lysine & dietary fat (The Happy Chicken Coop).

Protein Power

Protein helps to build as well as restore and repair tissues. BSFL protein ranges from 35%-45% of dried weight.

 

For chickens, this means stronger feathers and better egg production (more eggs, larger eggs, or both) (eawag).

Ideal Phosphorus : Calcium Ratio

Phosphorus helps to metabolize or use the Calcium that the chickens eat.

 

Calcium provides a variety of benefits, like keeping eggshells strong.

 

BSFL have the perfect ratio of Phosphorus to Calcium to ensure optimal Calcium uptake (NIH). 

Reduce Antibiotics

Black soldier fly larvae improve immune function in poultry. BSFL have high amounts of anti-microbial peptides (AMPs), which can reduce the need for (and cost of) antibiotics (NIH).

Nice Looking Larvae.png

Insects are a natural part of the diet for many fish species, poultry, swine, wild birds, and even dogs and cats. 

Slow roasted at low temperatures to maximize all protein and fatty acid benefits, these larvae support cognitive function, weight management and palatability.

FEED GRADE / DENSITY: 170 - 230g/L

Live BSF Larvae

Live black soldier fly larvae are the most sustainable, natural way to feed poultry, fish, swine, reptiles, exotic birds, and more. With no processing or drying, the full spectrum of bioavailable nutrients are available to animals. Live larvae promote animal health and positive behavior by simulating natural feeding environments.
