Egg quality improvements
Research indicates that dietary supplementation using red seaweed (Sarcodiotheca gaudichaudii) inclusions can act as a potential prebiotic to improve performance, egg quality, and overall gut health in layer hens. Seaweed supplementation increased the abundance of beneficial bacteria [e.g., Bifidobacterium longum (4- to 14-fold), Streptococcus salivarius (4- to 15-fold)] and importantly reduced the prevalence of Clostridium perfringens in the gut of the chicken.
