Abstract

The study was conducted atcmU Poultry Project, Musuan, Bukidnon, with a duration of 60 days to evaluate the effect of black soldier flies as a supplemental protein source on the growth performance of colored broiler chicken. A total of forty-eight heads of day-old chicks regardless of sex were used in the study. Chicks were randomly distributed into four dietary treatments. Treatments were replicated three times with four birds per replication following the Complete Randomized Design. Statistical differences of treatment mean comparison was made with Duncan Multiple Range Test. The treatments were as follows: T1 (control), T2 (95% commercial feeds = 5% BSFL), T3 (90% commercial feeds + 10% BSFL), T4 (85% commercial feeds + 15% BSFL). The study revealed a highly significant difference (P<0.01) observed in the average feed consumption and treatment consumption of frozen black soldier fly larvae while return above feed cost showed an encouraging profit. Therefore, supplementation of frozen black soldier fly larvae to colored broiler chicken showed better growth performance of the birds. Treatment 2, 3, and 4 consistently showed good performances as far as the final weight, total weight gained, and average daily gained is concerned. It recommends supplementing frozen black soldier fly larvae as supplementation to a commercial feed of colored broiler chicken in levels applied in Treatment 2,3 and 4 because it is good support for the growth of the chicken, it adds profit and has a beneficial effect on the birds as revealed in the return above feed cost.
