Introducing moringa powder as a sunflower seed meal replacement in chicken feed

Existing feed mix should already contain 20 to 22 percent of crude protein. 

Begin the chickens on a feed regimen containing 20 percent sunflower seed meal. 

After a week, reduce the sunflower seed meal to 15 percent of the mix, adding the moringa oleifera leaf powder as a substitute for the remaining 5 percent. All other feed components remain at fixed ratios and observe for 1 week.

Increase the moringa composition to 10 percent and decrease the sunflower seed meal accordingly. Observe for 1 week.

Repeat the augmentation of moringa leaf powder by an additional 5 percent per week and reduce the sunflower seed element proportionately.

Record food intake, food leftover and weigh each bird. Results, in general, should be the same or better as sunflower based chicken feed.

The following paper provides a scientific study of various moringa oleifera percentages in a sunflower seed based chicken feed for layers.
