Different levels of coconut meal in laying diets were compared in three studies using intensity of lay and feed conversion as criteria for comparison. In all studies the production and efficiency of feed utilization decreased as the level of coconut meal was increased in the diet. The best results were obtained when the level of coconut meal did not surpass approximately 20% of the diet. The practical level of coconut meal up to approximately 20% of the diet will be determined by its relative net cost.
