Students Rise To The CREATIVATE Challenge
https://www1.lehigh.edu/news/students-r ... -challenge

Excerpt:
Huck and three other Lehigh undergraduate students are looking to reinvigorate Hawaii’s egg industry by making cheap chicken feed from local resources. Their product is called Happy Feed.

“The egg industry in Hawaii has really declined,” says Huck, a materials science and engineering major, “but there is a large demand for local farm products, including fresh eggs.”

Huck’s team makes Happy Feed from three resources that are abundant in Hawaii: kelp, the larvae of black soldier flies, and the pulp and husks of sunflower seeds. ...

... They raise black soldier flies by feeding them food waste, which is produced by Hawaii’s many hotels and restaurants.

I assumed they wouldn't be able to eat sunflower seed husks. I could feed a few lbs of bsfl a day with as many seeds as I eat, lol
