Chicks can travel from hatcheries or are hatched within the producer’s flock. Either way, we want to optimally support the chicks with a strong start in life. A healthy chick has a healthy gut. This is a key contributor to ensuring the bird’s growth and development. Therefore, optimal early gut health management is essential to ensure the best performance and proper immunity.
