Are you asking about the gardening meal?

In older days, the feedmills in Germany added fishmeal ( for protein) to the food. And you could tell, becauswe the eggs taste like fish hmm. After lots of complains, they switched to soja

I think there is probably a lot of beef meat and bone meal in non-vegetarian chicken feed.

I feed my hens a few ounces of fishmeal several times a week.  I have a cup feeder that they can eat free choice.  There is never any left at the end of the day that I give it to them.  I have never had a fishy tasting egg.  You can supposedly feed 5-10% fishmeal without a fishy taste.  Fish meal really helps with extra protein.  I suppose bone & meat mill does he same.
