When a hen is sitting she can loss up to 60% of her body weight. As she is not laying, calcium rich feed is not needed. Broody hens will not get off her eggs regularly to eat as per her normal daily intake. She needs a high protein feed that is very appealing to entice her to eat.
Lice, mites and rodents are drawn to a broody hen as she is an easy target.
The Broody Hen Boost is specially formulated with a mix of delicious and enticing, high protein ingredients for her to pick at. We have added Lavender which is antibacterial, a calming stress reliever, increases blood circulation, highly aromatic and a natural insect repellent. Echinacea is also added for its antibacterial and immunity boost properties.
We recommend using both The Broody Hen Boost and Wellness Herb Blend together.
A little goes a long way with this Mix. Just place a small bowl, approximately half a cup of Broody Hen Boost inside the nest box with your hen daily. It is recommended to still have her normal feed available but the Broody Hen Boost will ensure she is receiving the extras she needs.
If used in conjunction with our Wellness Herb Blend- sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons around the nest box.
