Bad bacteria, such as certain strains of salmonella and Clostridium perfringens (what long names!), can make our hens very sick, giving them diarrhoea and leading to dehydration. E. coli commonly causes respiratory problems in hens. Beryl’s Friendly Bacteria becomes established in the gut and excludes such nasty’s, reducing the likelihood of infection. There are many reasons why the balance of gut bacteria gets disturbed.

This happens if birds are stressed, change diet, or if they are treated with antibiotics. Giving Beryl’s Friendly Bacteria as early in life as possible, and thereafter every 4 weeks, ensures that the perfect balance is maintained throughout the stresses and strains of everyday life.

We all know that healthy hens are happy and productive hens!

So if it is a naturally occurring phenomenen, how come our hens don’t already have it?

When birds hatch in the wild they naturally pick up their mother’s friendly bacteria from her faeces, but domestic chickens are normally hatched in incubators and so are separated from their mothers. They are therefore susceptible to whatever nasty bacteria are lurking in their surroundings
