Description:

Priobiotics are gut-healthy, incredibly beneficial micro-organisms that have been shown, in study after study (see below), in all sorts of animals, to improve overall health. They're especially important after antibiotics, which can kill the beneficial micro-organisms that normally populate the gut, but they're also proven to prevent bacterial infection!

Bird-Powder is formulated specifically for birds. We recommend it during times of stress, when you've completed a round of antibiotics or de-wormers, and prophylactically a few times a year, too. It can only help improve the overall health and rate of egg laying in your flock.

This product contains 10 billion colony-forming units of live (viable), naturally-occurring microorganisms including L. acidophilus, L. casei, L. fermentum and L. plantarum. It also contains Streptococcus faecium and active yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiac. Made with dried whey, dried egg product and dried honey. A full complement of vitamins A, D, E, B12, niacin, folic acid and calcium. May top dress over moistened food.
