In the search for an alternative dietary protein source for poultry, grasshoppers were harvested and processed into a meal (Nigeria). The approximate nutrient composition was determined. The grasshopper meal was then incorporated at 0, 25, 50 and 75 g/kg into broiler diets. Each diet was fed to triplicate groups of 10 one-day-old broiler chicks for 49 days in a completely randomized design.
