The increasing demand for poultry products has driven the utilisation of more conventional crops as poultry feed. To achieve economically viable and environmentally friendly poultry production, attempts have been made to incorporate medicinal plants such as Moringa oleifera in their diet. The high nutritional factor, including high protein content, the abundance of micronutrients and various phytochemicals, has contributed to the rapid use of M. oleifera in the poultry diet. Notably, its application has a significant impact on poultry health and husbandry. The following paper reviews M. oleifera on their efficacy, potential limitation and effect on target poultry species. Furthermore, recognising the impact of utilising different processing methods on this plant could offer poultry and feed producers considerable benefits.
