Gut Health and Nutrition Solutions for Backyard Poultry

Backyard flock owners strive for healthy, long-living, and high-producing birds. Everyone wants to collect an egg that has a strong shell, bright yolk, and is safe to eat. Enteric pathogens and gut health issues pose a threat to the health and productivity of backyard flocks.

Improve eggshell quality and flock gut health through proper nutrition

Egg breaking strength, eggshell thickness, and overall flock health are all things that the backyard poultry owner strives for. One way to target these goals is by taking a look at the gut health of your birds. Gut health is directly and indirectly connected to overall bird wellbeing. Pathogenic bacteria, stress, and toxins in the gut can damage the intestinal lining allowing pathogens to enter the animal, resulting in inflammation and inefficient nutrient absorption. This takes resources away from the egg, eggshell, and overall health of your bird.
