Prebiotics + Probiotics is a powdered water supplement formulated to maximize your flock’s health year-round. It ensures optimal gut health for healthy digestion and nutrient absorption which impacts overall wellness. An imbalanced gut can prevent your chicken from expending energy where it wants to most: healthy growth, fertility, and immunity. Ninety percent of diseases can be traced back to gut health and the microbiome.
These supplements are recommended for regular use throughout all seasons and especially during increased times of stress. Environmental stressors for chickens could be a season change, extremely high or low temperatures, transporting or handling, introduction to a new flock member, nutritional excess/deficiency, or sickness to name a few. These ingredients strengthen your chicken’s natural defense system from within to proactively promote optimum wellness year-round and during the times when your flock may need it most.
Prebiotics + Probiotics for chickens ensures optimal gut health for healthy digestion and nutrient absorption. That matters because an imbalanced gut can prevent your chicken from expending energy where it wants to most, whether that be increasing egg production, coming out of molt, or other factors that contribute to its ability to thrive, like fighting sickness. When the body is fighting pathogens in the gut, their body is excreting more nutrients and liquid than it wants to. Ninety percent of diseases can be traced back to gut health and the microbiome.
For overall wellness, we generally recommend supplementing once a week; however, depending on the nutrition and trace minerals of the provided feed, you may choose to supplement more frequently.
Environmental stressors can occur during a season change, extremely high or low temperatures, transporting or handling, introduction to a new flock member, nutritional excess/deficiency, or sickness to name a few.
Supplements are not a replacement for a healthy diet, and we always recommend prioritizing a healthy diet first built around daily nutritional requirements.
When in recovery or fighting an internal battle we may not see yet, chickens go to water first, food second. By capitalizing on the water source, you can provide essential nutrients and boost the microbiome so body functions can begin to improve, encouraging a return to a regular diet for energy and nutrition.
Abso-flocking-lutely? Yes, they are. We use zero fillers and all-natural ingredients. We also never use fillers or add drugs or immune suppressants. Every single one of our all-natural ingredients serves a purpose to unlock the genetic potential for your chickens to survive and thrive.
Most definitely. Depending on the individual bird or flock needs, you may choose to supplement with one or both. To support overall flock health and especially in times of stress, it’s perfectly acceptable, even ideal, to use both, but if you want to stair step, we recommend starting with Prebiotics + Probiotics and building from there.
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.
