Feeding Chicks from Newly Hatched

The first feed of the day for 3 days should be a quality yoghurt with high live micro-organism count. This provides a reliable source of live bacteria (probiotics) that may have a beneficial effect on a bird’s intestinal microbial population. This is cheaper and more effective than using a commercial probiotic powder, that usually have short expiry dates and are inactivated by heat and processing.

Next feed young birds a dilute mixture of Passwell Hand Rearing Food to begin with, and then gradually increase the solids content as they get older. House chicks in a warm, draught-free brooder, at an appropriate temperature for their age.

Available in 300g & 1.5kg sizes.
