As the current ingredients of making poultry feeds are
becoming more expensive,other options of substituting the
feeds have been developed.
One of them is making maggots like larvae of black soldier
flies. Odour attracts black soldier flies. To attract these flies,a
compost is made by mixing chicken waste matter with kitchen
refuse.Rotten fruits can also be added to the compost heap to
attract the flies .
A bin measuring 1 metre wife,1 metre long and 1 metre high
can be used to collect the larvae. The compost waste is put in
the bin together with kitchen refuse and food remains. Once
they start rotting they will produce a bad odour.
The odour will attract the female black soldier flies which will
them lay eggs. The bin should have a dark lid with an internal
ramp inclined at an able of 30 degrees to ensure the larvae
remain inside.
After five days the larvae are ready to be used to feed chicken.
The larvae can also be used to feed fish and pigs.The larvae
are rich in protein which is an essential component of chicken
The bons should be maintained by sterilizing with any suitable
detergent after every four weeks. The breeding cafe is cleaned
with a piece of cotton wool and water.
