Mereks and Probiotics.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Unfortunately, I recently lost a hen to Mereks disease, ( I had her Autopsied) and I've read that probiotics can help keep my other hens immunity up. I purchased some Probios powder and I'd like to add it to their feed, Has anyone used Probios and know the ratio? I can't add it to their water, as I use automatic watering cups. Thanks so much!

It would be very difficult to mix in their feed and not have it wind up in the bottom of their feeder uneaten.  I would really recommend making fermented feed for them (also highly beneficial) and mixing the powder in to that!

 

Here is an excellent article to help you with fermented feed.  I know it sounds weird, but believe me, chickens go NUTS for it!
