Anyone feed soy hull??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was just wondering if any of you ever feed soy hull pellets to your chickens? The local feed store told me if they free range, that soy hulls is all they would need for extra protein. It's about 30%. I bought a bag and they seem to like it, but it has corn gluten in it also and they want no part of that. Is this acceptable to feed?
It's about 1/2 the price of grower or scratch And I think I can get just the soy hull w/o the corn gluten.

30% what, fiber?

 

Soy Hulls is the fibrous hulls of soy beans and it has a low protein amount.

The high amount of fiber makes soy hull a undesirable feed ingredient in high amounts in poultry feed. Most of what I have read about feeding soy hull to poultry states that it should be fed at no more than 15% of there total feed diet. 

 

 

Also soy hulls may be about 1/2 the price of grower but it is a 1/4 (or less) of the nutrition.
