While Fresh Pecks is formulated to exceed your chickens’ daily needs and maximize their health, sometimes additional supplements are needed. Your flock’s diet is built around their daily nutritional requirements. No matter how high the quality of feed, a supplement is for stressors and circumstances—internal or external—when your flock would benefit from a boost: outside toxins & pollutants, extreme changes in temp, new flock mate, bird flu, transportation, coccidiosis, etc.
Depending on the nutrition and trace minerals/quality of the provided feed, you may or may not need to supplement more frequently. We recommend prioritizing a healthy diet first, and then supplement at least once a week. A supplement should not be a replacement for a quality diet.
The goal at Grubbly Farms is to create a holistic approach to overall wellness so your ladies can thrive, minimizing illness and visits to the veterinarian.
