Meat and bone meal as the protein supplement with corn, oats, wheat or equal proportions of corn-oats, corn-wheat or com-oats-wheat as energy sources were used to formulate 13% protein layer diets. The control was a 13% protein corn-soy diet (Table 1). Layers of a commercial strain and 52 weeks of age were fed the experimental diets for five 28-day periods using five replications of eight birds per treatment.
