Regenerates the intestinal “barrier” flora. It is probably the main pillar of bird health.
Most diseases are transmitted by water or soiled food (through contaminated excrement) through the digestive system (orofecal transmission). This is the reason why it is crucial that the intestinal “barrier” of the digestive flora be in very good condition to maintain good health, especially during birth.
Probiotic lactic ferments are, together with brewers’ yeast and drinking water acidification with cider vinegar, the only treatment for proventriculitis before it becomes megabacteriosis. They also mostly treat diarrhea and weight loss.
It is crucial to regulate digestive flora and the intestinal passage, especially during antibiotic treatments because these do not differentiate between good and bad digestive bacteria. Consequently, it is vital to reinforce the intestinal flora before and after administering antibiotics.
In addition, fledglings are born with an unused intestinal flora which is first used when parents feed the fledglings during the feeding period. The richer in probiotic ferments the fledgling feed is, the faster the fledgling will be protected and the faster its growth will start.
Lactic ferments increase the assimilation of the nutrients contained in food rations and hasten growth dramatically in the same way as brewers’ yeast. This is natural and even indispensable for wild birds at risk from predators. Paradoxically, because this risk has disappeared through captivity, growth speed is often neglected by bird breeders. Yet, a bird with delayed growth can never make up for this. This does not mean that it will remain very small, but that it will never reach the maximum size corresponding to its genetic potential.
Neglecting the intestinal flora of birds in captivity amounts to depriving them of their main sanitary defense and their main survival and young growth asset.
Lactic ferments, calcium caseinates, fish proteolysats
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
2 tablespoons per kilo of feed or 1 to 2 teaspoons per liter of drinking water.
For care purposes: 1 to 2 days a week uninterruptedly or for 1 week a month.
This proportion must be tripled to be mixed with the feed, from birth to weaning.
