Bee Pollen Granules

Bee pollen is one of those “superfoods” that contains not just a ton of vitamins and minerals, but also more protein than meat! Multiple studies have been done to examine the health impacts of feeding bee pollen to chickens.

As a feed additive, bee pollen shows signs of being a powerful way to prevent parasites and bad bacteriawhile increasing the overall health of the chicken.

In one study, chickens fed 35 grams of bee pollen per 1 kilo of feed showed more beneficial bacteria in their guts – which means a healthier bird overall.

This same study also showed that bee pollen reduced the amount of bad bacteria – meaning that bee pollen showed antibacterial properties.

Multiple studies have shown that chickens with higher amounts of beneficial bacteria not only GREW better (because they weren’t battling bad bacteria like campylobacter as much) but LAID healthier eggs (because the eggs were less likely to be transmitters of bad bacteria like salmonella).

Dried Mealworms- packed full of protein, vitamins and high-grade edible oils.

Pumpkin Seeds-loaded with nutrients and vitamin E.

Cracked Corn- high energy source, contains Cryptoxanthin-a colour pigment present in corn which helps give egg yolks a yellow colour.

Crushed peas-good protein quality and high in amino acids.

Crushed Lupins- good source of protein (28-34% crude protein) but also contain some fat (around 5%) and digestible fibre.

Wheat- improves digestion, increasing the ability to resist coccidiosis.

Sorghum- high energy source.

Black Sunflower seed- adds protein and makes feathers shinier and more water-resistant. Black oil sunflower seeds will increase egg production in hens, and promote weight gain. They also increase the nutrients in the eggs.

Hibiscus- Great fibre source. Boosts immunity.

Lavender -As well as relieving stress and promoting calm among our chickens, Lavender is full of antibacterial properties, and also a great all natural rodent repellent.
