Do my chickens need extra nutritional support in the winter?
With the flock being confined to the run more during the darker days this will create a muckier run, and can challenge your chickens’ immune systems.
There is higher potential at this time for chickens to start bullying or pecking due to overcrowding, so make sure that they have as much room as possible and more than enough feeders and drinkers (1 per every 4 chickens).
It is also key to provide appropriate nutrition and supplementation to maintain optimum health, support the immune system and to help prevent stress over the winter months.
Add Nettex Vit Boost Tonic to your chicken’s water daily, this contains essential vitamins and minerals to help support health and vitality.
