From Feather to Feed
City:Waterloo, ON
School:Cameron Heights C.I.
Abstract:The poultry industry produces millions of tons of feather waste annually. A soil microbial consortium was isolated and the ability of these microorganisms to degrade chicken feathers was investigated. The results demonstrated that microbial conversion of feathers is a biotechnological process that improves the utilization of feathers as feed.
