If you own chickens or any living animal, you are probably passionate about making sure they stay healthy. Healthy chickens are happy chickens that are low stress, grow and lay eggs regularly.
One way to ensure they stay healthy is to defend their digestive system from stress with Backyard Boost® Defense. Defense is a liquid supplement for all classes of poultry that promotes feed and water intake during times of stress and recovery to help support digestive health and a healthy inflammatory response.
Any time your chickens go through a transition period you should strongly consider adding Defense to their water. Your birds are very similar to you – when you are going through changes, you get stressed. Stress often leads to sickness. Therefore, Defense is ideal for whenever you first bring chickens home, move chicks from their brooder box to the coop, introduce new chicks to the flock or make any other changes, including changes in their diets or even if there are changes with the weather.
Backyard Boost Defense Contains Amaferm®, a precision-based prebiotic that helps combat the negative effects of stress, restores digestive health and gets your hens back to producing eggs faster. As a biotic, Amaferm is similar to the yogurt that humans eat, and helps the chickens’ gut keep working properly. We know that 70% of the immune response is found in the digestive system, so if their gut feels good, they should stay healthy as well.
Another prebiotic in Defense includes MOS, which helps trap and expel pathogens, the bad germs, limiting their ability to do harm. Defense also contains electrolytes to support proper hydration, as well as organic Zinc, the antioxidant Vitamin E and B vitamins.
Backyard Boost Defense is easy to feed. It should be mixed into fresh water daily during times of stress or sickness for the best response.
Chickens are prone to sickness. A sick chicken could potentially quit eating and drinking, spread sickness to other birds, quit laying eggs and ultimately die. It’s in your best interest to keep them healthy, keep them happy and keep them laying. Keep your flock flourishing with Backyard Boost Defense and keep them healthy and happy.
