Dear Ebuka Epunam
Not sure why you specifically want to add crayfish! Generally an optimal balance of digestible amino acids can be obtained without use of animal proteins; if you send me contact details we can assist in this area. MPS

Bio Security, Water Sanitation, specially bio-film in pipe lines, is very important.
Right selection of animal source of protein to avoid disease transfer to the bird.

Right selection of Plant source specially toxins free and claimed value for protein must be checked, otherwise nutrition will become imbalanced.

Good Acidifiers to take care of pathogens in the crop and small intestine and higher PKa value classifiers like Sodium Butyrate, particularly special fat coated or Esterified will take care of pathogens in the hind GUT will ensure consistent good production.

Butyrate along with other acidifiers ensures good GUT health by improving Villi surface area, crypt depth and height, strengthening tight junction.

Combined effect of all above and quality feed supplements will ensure goof production and ultimately good profitability

It gives full protection through production of immunity and disease resistance.
Strain wise requirement of nutrition is essential for proper growth and production

DR. Gowda is absolutely right in giving the jist to a profitable poultry business. Intestinal health along with good management practice should be the priority.

For good intestinal health, the selection of feed supplements in combination with liquid supplements should be very carefully selected.
