Is there any research
on feeding crayfish to poultry?
Abdel Hadi completed a PhD
study where she compared chickens being fed on fish meal with a group
that were raised on meal made from crayfish waste.
The crayfish group had
stronger bones, a higher optical density of meat, and laid stronger,
higher protein eggs.
How does one get started in
farming crayfish for chickens? Go down to your local creek and turn
over some rocks, or visit Ebay for a wide variety of people selling
breeding pairs for Koi ponds and aquarium enthusiasts. We plan to give
it a try when the weather gets warmer.
