Sav-A-Chick Probiotics are gut-healthy, beneficial micro-organisms that have been shown to improve overall health in poultry. They're especially important to use after antibiotics, which can kill the beneficial micro-organisms that normally populate the gut—but they're also proven to prevent bacterial infection!
We recommend Sav-A-Chick Probiotics during times of stress, when you've completed a round of antibiotics or de-wormers, and as a preventative a few times a year, too. It can help improve the overall health and rate of egg laying in your flock. (Don't let the "chick" in the name fool you! It's formulated for flocks of all ages.)
In fact, many large-scale farms are moving away from the use of antibiotics in favor of herb-based products and probiotics. So, if you want to have a healthy, all natural flock, probiotics may be the answer to keeping your flock antibiotic free! You can read more about industry changes in the articles below.
