    Hi, Folks,

    I have decided to treat my (10) birds to a 14 ounce can of tuna twice a week just a give them a little boost in protein, and of course because they LOVE tuna fish. I then decided if I poured the tuna out over some of this Manna Pro "Poultry Conditioner" they would be more likely to eat the conditioner since it would be saturated with tuna juice. I tried this yesterday, using about eight tablespoons of the conditioner, and the chickens really seemed to like it and they ate well. Why, you ask, am I doing this? Just to increase their awesomeness.
    Is there any down side to this plan?

    I'm not sure if there is a "down side" to what you are doing but I find it a lot easier to just mix the conditioner into the feed itself personally.
