Over the past several years we have conducted experiments to determine the effects of adding selenium to chicken diets. The purpose of this paper is to report effects of selenium supplements on tissue and egg deposition. Selenium is not adequate in the feeds grown in certain areas so currently the Food and Drug Administration is being asked to approve the addition of selenium to pre pared feeds. As with any new additive there must be sufficient proof that there are no harmful effects before the Food and Drug Administration can grant per mission to add selenium to feeds.
