Broilact® provides the natural microbial transfer from
the mother hen for hatchery-born chicks
Under natural conditions a newly hatched chick would acquire a normal, robust gut microbiota directly from the mother hen. This natural microbial transfer cannot take place in the highly sanitized environment of a large-scale modern hatchery. Without the normal gut microbiota, the young bird is susceptible to unfavourable bacteria, causing reduced growth and performance, increased morbidity and mortality, wet litter, and food safety hazards.
