Scientifically-proven products to strengthen your hens and their environment.
Tired of dirty eggs and low hatchability?
Are your hens producing, but struggling with viable egg production? Or are your laying hen numbers dropping because of mortality issues? Maybe your hatchability rate is good, but the eggs are dirty and just make more work for you.
Imagine... Firmer shells, improved hatchability and healthier hens.
These don’t have to be daydreams. This has become a reality for breeders we work with across the nation—and it’s possible for you too.
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 and are more hearty that 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 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 the hear organic acids. Yes, they provide some acidifying effects but they provide many more benefits to keep your flock healthy.
Pathogen colonization is 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 that protective layer that the disease causing organisms produce. 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. Think in terms of 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.
Scientifically Proven Products
Better birds from the inside out.
Each Southland Organics product is designed to strengthen your hens and their environment.
With healthier hens, you will see firmer shells through improved calcium and vitamin absorption. Better absorption during digestion results in a tighter gut and cleaner eggs. Our Hen Helper has shown that it can help keep birds in peak longer, which can help with egg production.
The science behind success.
All of our specially formulated supplements use biologically active, organic carbon and beneficial microbes (probiotics) to boost nature’s defenses inside birds' guts and in the litter below their feet.
This helps them fight off bad bacteria that cause disease like dermatitis, enteritis and so much more.
These important ingredients also help boost their natural ability to absorb and process nutrients. This creates a healthier bird on every level—nutrition, fertility and environment.
We believe so much in our products’ effectiveness in increasing overall hen health because science backs them up.
