How does Flock Guard™ support flock health?
Whether housed in a coop or free ranging on your farm, your birds are exposed to multiple threats every day that could cause illness or impact their well-being. Now there’s a way to be more proactive with regular support for your birds that will help them combat threats they may face in their day-to-day lives.
Flock Guard™ is a daily supplement formulated to support gut health, immune function and overall wellness in backyard flocks, including chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese, pheasants and quail of all life stages. In addition to probiotics and a vitamin blend, Flock Guard also contains functional egg proteins.
What Are Functional Egg Proteins?
Functional egg proteins are a protein source found in dry egg powder. Dry egg powder is made by converting a whole hen’s egg into a powder form. The functional egg proteins in that powder bind to pathogens, preventing them from attaching to the gut, which can result in illness.
In addition to protecting the gut, functional egg proteins have several other benefits:
- Support improved muscle and skeletal development, resulting in fuller, healthier looking birds.
- Support vibrant, colorful plumage and comb appearance.
- Help reduce the impacts of immune stress by keeping pathogens at bay.
Why is Gut Health Important for Your Flock?
Gut health is a battle between good bugs and bad bugs or pathogens. Flock Guard provides a three-fold approach to this ongoing balancing act by delivering daily support to populate good bacteria and supports a gut environment that helps keep pathogens at bay through the action of functional egg proteins. Plus, it provides a vitamin and mineral supplement to give the immune system an extra boost. Maintaining a healthy gut is essential for keeping birds happy, healthy and productive.
Flock Guard’s Three-Fold Approach
Flock Guard contains naturally occurring live bacteria to populate the gut with good bugs that work to support a healthy digestive system. This can also help keep bad bugs from coming back.
- Vitamins and Minerals
A beneficial blend of vitamins A, D3, E and B12 help support the immune system and contribute to optimal growth, development and overall well-being.
- Functional Egg Proteins
While functional egg proteins help protect the gut, they also have beneficial nutritional value. Dry egg powder is Flock Guard’s source of functional egg proteins. It has a protein value of 24%, so essentially, with Flock Guard, your water can become an additional protein source.
