Natural Supplements for Chickens

Backyard chicken coops can be such a source of joy. Whether you raise chickens for the farm fresh eggs, highest quality chicken or simply as your beloved pets, Southland Organics natural supplements for chickens will help you grow happier, healthier hens. It's time to boost your roost!

Here's the scoop on a healthy coop.

Each Southland Organics poultry feed supplement is designed to strengthen your hens' overall wellbeing through a healthy immune system. For the past decade, we have helped poultry lovers across the nation give their birds the utmost care by creating the healthiest internal and external environments possible. 

With healthier hens, you'll see firmer shells through improved calcium and vitamin absorption. Better absorption during feed passage also results in cleaner eggs. With just a few supplements each week, your birds can remain healthy throughout the seasons with a strong immune system and improved egg laying.

For detailed instructions on how to use our products for your coop, check out our Backyard Poultry Dosing Chart.

Southland Stories

"These products have perked my chickens up. All are laying regularly with clean eggs."

"This is a great product! Any time the girls slow down with egg production I add this to their water, and voila, egg production is right back up."

"Great people to deal with and great product. My birds like it better it seems, and price was better than the ACV I use for me."

Scientifically-Proven Products

All of our specially formulated supplements use biologically active, organic carbon and beneficial bacteria (probiotics) to boost nature’s defenses inside birds' guts and in the coop around them. This helps birds absorb more nutrients from both feed and free choice water supplements as well as fight off bad bacteria that cause disease like curled toe, vent gleet and more. 

These important ingredients in a chicken's diet also help boost their natural ability to absorb vitamins and electrolytes. They help chickens process nutrients to improve free choice feed intake and thus weight gain, creating a healthier bird on every level.

Our laying hen supplements are easily mixed in with drinking water so your birds can quickly get the boost they need.

Boost your Flock's Immune System

A chicken's immune system is central to its overall health. Add our supplements to your chickens’ diet for flock-changing health benefits!

Probiotics for Chickens

Hen Helper Poultry Probiotics

Our Hen Helper includes probiotics for poultry that have been shown to keep birds in peak longer, which can help with the natural production of eggs. If you’re growing chicks, it can be used as an early bird poultry supplement to start your flock off healthy, and keep them that way!

Hen Helper also tightens the gut and helps improve feed conversion. A tighter gut means cleaner eggs—and as you know, cleaner eggs are always the goal.

Mother Load Apple Cider Vinegar infused with Garlic

Forget your crushed garlic and grocery store-bought apple cider vinegar. Our Mother Load ACV includes the vinegar mother plus infused garlic! It's ready to use, so all you have to do is add it to your coop's waterer. When used as a free choice supplement, Mother Load encourages chickens to drink more. This is because they love the taste of the garlic!

ACV has long been used for human consumption because of its benefits to our guts. It works in a similar manner for chickens! Free choice ACV can boost a chicken's immune system, keep the digestive tract healthy and provide gut-friendly bacteria that support chickens' health. These bacteria work in the gut for clean egg production.

Make sure that you don't use Mother Load or any other ACV at the same time as a probiotic like Hen Helper, as the ACV will conflict with the bacteria in a probiotic.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Chickens
Catalyst Poultry Vitamin | Liquid Formula

Catalyst Poultry Vitamins

Calcium deficiencies affect shell quality and can make bones brittle. Boosting layer feed with a highly absorbable vitamin mineral supplement for chicken, like our Catalyst poultry vitamin, can help. Chicken vitamin supplements have been associated with improved cardiovascular health, absorption of essential nutrients and a boost in a chicken's immune system. Catalyst is best used with Hen Helper, which aids in nutrient absorption.

Take Care of your Chickens' Herb Garden Too

Many backyard chicken keepers grow fresh greens and herbs near their free range chickens. Some will use the dried herbs in their hen's diet or fermented feed.

How our Poultry Products Work

Simply put, our products replenish with living biology and provide valuable activated carbon. The process of cold water extraction leaves not only indigenous biology fully intact but provides an environment for them to rapidly multiply.

Lawn Microbes

Our microbes are mostly Bacillus species, which are heartier than other poultry probiotics that only feature Lactobacillus acidophilus and other lactic acid-focused species. Poultry production and poultry performance are greatly increased by live microorganisms.

Our products are specially formulated with live bacteria in a vegetative form that prove a positive influence on gut health and gut integrity.

For a look at some of the indigenous beneficial bacteria (probiotics) and what they do, check out our blog on Big Ole Bird Ingredients.

Humate for Lawns

Pathogen colonization occurs when harmful microbes, such as Salmonella and Escherichia coli, gather in the intestinal tract and destroy gut integrity. These harmful bacteria then attack the epithelial cells, causing inflammation in both baby chicks and adult chickens. As they attack the epithelial cells, they form a protective biofilm that serves as a physical barrier. Fulvic acid is "wetter than water" and serves as a destroyer of biofilms. Our acids destroy the protective layer produced by the disease-causing organisms. This mechanism assists the birds’ natural barrier function for improved immune response.

Carbon for Lawns

The carbon baseline for our products binds harmful compounds and boosts gut integrity. This is similar to charcoal, which has been used for thousands of years to improve drinking water and for general detoxification purposes.

Activated carbon is a deeper level as it adsorbs longer chain hydrogen-rich molecules. The activated carbon in Hen Helper has shown to adsorb benzenes, chelate nutrients and bind metals. The health benefits for both commercial and backyard poultry is in the adsorption of mycotoxins.
