Dilute 100ml in 100 litres of clean water per day. Designed for us immediately from placement in the first 7 days of life or following a poor start to support recovery. Use for 2-3 days following early antibiotic treatments.
Why Biacton Plus/ZooLac Plus COMBO?
Biacton Plus/ZooLac Plus COMBO is part of our probiotic range and is easily soluble in water. The active part of the Biacton component is a selected strain of lactic acid bacteria, Lactobacillus farciminis. The strain is very powerful in the gut, resulting in the composition of the microbiota in an acidogenic direction, and a signficant change in the chemical environment of the intestines. This directly inhibits potential pathogens. The ZooLac component contains a special strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus. ZooLac is a novel bacteria product which provides a protective coating on the newly emerging enterocytes and blocks the adhesion of pathogenic bacteria. If the bacteria cannot adhere, they cannot colonise the gut.
Product Usage: The product can easily be added to header tanks or via medigators/dosatron. It is important to clean the water lines through. Use at a rate of 10g per 100 litres of clean drinking water. Use alongside Chick Start Plus.
Why use Chick Paper?
This Chick Paper is produced by Kanters and is an easy method to stimulate day old chicks to drink and eat. The idea is that the paper has high rustling properties which can be placed under each drinker and feeder. When the first birds walk on the paper, a rustling sound emits which attracts other birds.
By placing the feed on top of the paper, the birds will not only find the water but they have very easy access to the feed. Due to the difference in colour/texture of the paper compared to the feed, the birds will be able to distinguish the feed easier.
The paper is highly absorbent, quickly soaking up bird droppings. The paper is highly biodegradable and disintegrates into the litter. This chick paper can be used for the first three days of life. Lay either side of drinker lines and spread food lightly on top.
The pack contains one roll of Horka 200 variety. One roll is 200 metres in length.
