Better feed conversion.
Healthier game birds.
Scientifically-proven products to help your flocks thrive.
Frustrated with poor performance?
The world of growing commercial quail faces challenges that threaten bird health and fitness on a daily basis.
It can be extremely discouraging when sick birds, filthy houses and pens and unappealing plumage persist no matter how much you disinfect, treat or supplement.
You’re putting in the work but not seeing the results you need and struggling to treat the symptoms of a more deeply rooted problem. That’s where we can help! 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.
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.
Most people in commercial poultry production think of a mere acidification of water when they hear “organic acids.” While organic acids do provide some acidifying effects, they also provide additional benefits to keep your flock healthy.
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.
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 Big Ole Bird 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.
Let's get to the root of the issues
When you look a little closer, like microscopically close, you can see the root issue. Your quail enclosures, whether indoor houses or outdoor pens, are a biological battlefield. Here you’ll find two kinds of bacteria—GOOD and BAD.
Antibiotics and disinfectants wipe out both, knocking down nature’s designed defenses. This creates a blank slate for bad bacteria to take over, uninhibited.
This is ground zero for the problems you continually fight. To win, you must strengthen the good bacteria and natural defenses!
