Wear a pair of rubber gloves when handling Beryl’s Friendly Bacteria otherwise it makes your hands smelly!

  1. For up to 6 chickens, use the 6 hen sachet and mix the entire contents with 10 ml (that’s 2 teaspoons) of water which is free of chlorine. Chlorine free water can be obtained by boiling water in the kettle and then leaving it until it is completely cold, or using deionised or mineral water. Do not use water straight from the tap!
  2. For up to 12 chickens, use the 12 hen sachet and mix the contents with 15ml (3 teaspoons) of water which is chlorine free.
  3. Use the syringe to dispense 1ml of the paste into each of the chicken’s beaks. You will need 1ml regardless of the size of the bird, whether chick or adult. (You will need someone to hold onto the chicken while you are doing this!)
  4. Once a sachet has been opened it must be used immediately and cannot be stored as once the anaerobic friendly bacteria are exposed to air they have only a limited life of about 6 hours outside the hen’s gut.

Give beryl’s Friendly Bacteria as early in life as possible and thereafter monthly.
