During your hatchlings’ most vulnerable time, the FlockPro Chick Boost Supplement provides nutritional support to help them get a healthy start to life. This supplement introduces beneficial bacteria to the digestive systems, boosts chicks’ immune systems, and gives them the support they need for healthy growth. It contains no antibiotics but instead delivers microencapsulated probiotics, vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes. It’s easy to feed since you can just mix it into their water.
Chick Boost™ introduces beneficial bacteria to the crop which assist the chick in developing a positive bacteria culture in its digestive tract. Commercially hatched chicks are raised in a clean environment and are not exposed to natural flora found in the hen's digestive tract. Because of HCl gastric secretion which starts at day 18 of incubation, a newborn chick is at high risk for disease. More than any other animal chicks should be provided beneficial bacteria right after birth.
Beneficial Bacteria in the digestive tract help to crowd out the bad bacteria. This is known as selective exclusion and will help the animal fight off bad bacteria. (E. Coli, etc). A healthy gut leads to a healthy immune system to help combat disease and stress.
