    One of my customers asked about Chicken Immune Boosting supplements.

    I'm kind of at a loss on what would be good. Could we toss some bee pollen in their feed?

    Any ideas?

    Ideally you want their immune system to be at peak efficiency at all times. Part of that is biosecurity, proper feed, freshwater, worming, and inspecting for external parasites etc...
    Buttermilk mixed in their feed aids in keeping their immune system strong. ACV added in their water helps as well.
