All of our poultry receive a ration consisting of certified organic grains. We do not give them any antibiotics ever. Instead we start all of our chicks off with water that has molasses and apple cider vinegar added to it, plus their chick starter. The molasses gives them a boost of energy, including lots of minerals and the apple cider vinegar helps their digestion. We started doing this in 2012 and we lost very few chicks since then! All of our poultry also receive probiotics and kelp on a daily basis. This is to keep their immune system healthy.
