You already know about the health benefits of
probiotics – for us people and our animals alike, especially when
antibiotics are being given – and Hen Helper improves upon other probiotic products for poultry by introducing
beneficial levels of Humic and Fulvic acids to the formula. Scientific studies have shown that Humic acid, when added to the diet of poultry,
provide a number of beneficial effects:
- Improved resistance to pathogens and disease
- Improved weight gain
- Improved egg production
- Increased egg size
- Improved shell hardness
- Decreased mortality
We feel this product is worth offering
to your flock year-round, to head off illness or imbalance before it occurs. This product used to be called "Big Ole Bird." Hen Helper is the same product you know and love,
