A previous study (POULTRY 81-6) had shown that hens on diets utilizing sunflower meal as the major protein source supported fair egg production, whereas meat and bone meal as the major protein source supported substandard performance. Hen-day egg production was 15% poorer and feed intake was off by 22 grams per day averaged for all groups on the meat and bone meal diets.
