I think this video from NWRedworms confirms BSF pupae can be used as chicken feed

From an article on AgriProtein ( link )

Mr Drew, in Australia this week to attend the Asian Innovation conference ... testing has included 1000 chicken trials on measurements like weight gain and food preferences. "Not surprisingly, nine out of 10 chickens preferred larvae," Mr Drew said.

He was also on the radio yesterday saying how people are disgusted when thinking of there animals eating maggots even though maggots are actually the more natural food for chickens especially compared to fishmeal.

For the last 47 million years the main food source has been maggots but in the last 50 years people have come to believe feeding chickens fish is normal.

Wow that one out of ten chickens must have some issues.

Do you think feeding only larvae and water to meat birds will be ok? (When they are very small chicks, feed them small larvae) Or they still need grains and other stuff?

I'm not sure if a diet of BSFL only would work, I would guess mixing it up would be the way to go.
