Abstract From this study, it can be concluded that addition of protein of animal origin to a layer diet will not guarantee for a reduction in feather pecking behavior and an improvement of gut health. Despite this, feather pecking behavior and percentage of wet litter area were reduced in two (Daka-40 and Sonac-50) of four treatments with protein of animal origin.
