    Hi everyone I am new here! I was wondering if anyone has Big Ole Bird poultry probiotic. It says that it does not need to be refrigerated but I have been storing mine in my tack room. It is very very hot in there. I do not know if it is hurting it or if it is fine. I have still been giving it to my chickens hoping that it is still okay!! Hope to hear back!!

    is this a dehydrated live culture thing? if so it will definitely last longer in a cooler place. its dormant because its dry, but even so.., think of seeds. how important this is to you depends on how soon you plan to use it all up.

    (also, not that you asked, but id recommend saving done $$ skipping those sorts of products and just fermenting your feed instead...) ;)
