MORE INFORMATION

Chick Start Plus is a complementary liquid feed for chicks and young birds containing antioxidants, prebiotic  ScFOS (short-chain fructooligosaccharides) and energy, from sorbitol (metabolisable source), but also medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs  - capric acid and caprylic acid as readily available energy). It is designed to stimulate feeding, while aiding the development of a healthy gut and a natural immunity. 

Early feed consumption - Chicks which eat early are more likely to develop a healthy gut and grow evenly

Natural immunity -  As nutrients, pathogens and the associated antigens pass through the gut  birds build up a repertoire of antibodies. To do this effectively for long term protection the immune system must react quickly to establish good immunity

Gut health - The gut must develop quickly to effectively process nutrients for long term benefits. A healthy gut supports the development of favourable flora for optimum digestion and health

Functional ingredients: 

  • Sorbitol and medium-chain triglycerides - Providing energy to help minimise lethargy and aid early feed intake to kick start growth and maintain uniformity
  • Soluble prebiotic fibres - Helping the establishment of a healthy gut environment to maintain effective digestion of nutrients to support growth
  • Omega 3 and Omega 6 derived from salmon - Helps support natural immune development
  • Vitamin E, selenium and natural grape -  Natural antioxidants, effective in minimising the effects of free radicals which can cause cell damage. Unique antioxidant, grape extract, assists in the utilisation of nutrients
