We sequenced DNA from cecal contents samples taken from 24 chickens belonging to either a fast or slower growing breed consuming either a vegetable-only diet or a diet containing fish meal. We utilised 1.6T of Illumina data to construct 469 draft metagenome-assembled bacterial genomes, including 460 novel strains, 283 novel species and 42 novel genera.
