The girls and I have very exciting news to share with our faithful friends and followers and we wanted you to hear it here first! No, I didn’t get new chicks to add to my flock. YET! (winks)
You all know the girls and I love Strong Animals Chicken Essentials products and I use them religiously to keep my flock healthy, happy and thriving. What you might not know is that we have an incredible team of people behind the scenes listening to feedback about the products, the packaging and the needs of backyard chicken keepers like me.
Que drumroll, please!
Get ready for easier to use packaging, a fresh new design featuring the plants and essential oils used in their products, as well as two NEW daily snacks for your hens. Eeek! I can’t hardly wait for you to get your hands on these. My girls just love the new treats!
As you can see, the new packaging is fun and inviting. The team really wanted to make sure that chickens owners knew that Strong Animals products contained organic essential oils since they are the magic ingredients inside their products. The product line features oregano, thyme, cinnamon, lemongrass and eucalyptus essential oils to keep your flock healthy.
The best part is that all of the products were specially formulated by Strong Animals poultry nutritionists and veterinarians and they can all be safely used together. Strong Animals is a third generation family run business who understands the invaluable gift of family, so you can confidently provide your flock with products that have your girl’s health and the health of your own family in mind.
As you are all very aware, Coop Recuperate is one of my favorite Strong Animals products. It has such an amazing scent. The combination of lemongrass and eucalyptus keeps my coop smelling fresh! I didn’t think it was possible, but the team made this product even better because now it comes in this new jug that makes it easier to sprinkle on the bedding. They also came out with a larger size for those of us that want to use it more often.
Now let’s talk about these great NEW products! My girls literally “flocked” to these new daily snacks and loved them!
Happy Tract is a daily snack containing oregano, cinnamon and thyme essential oils, prebiotics, multi-grains, cracked corn, sunflower seeds and flaxseed to promote digestive health and support immunity. My favorite chicken Happy believes this product was named after her. Ha! Happy Tract smells absolutely delicious and my girls gobbled it right up.
Golden Graze is a daily snack containing oregano essential oils, multi-grains, cracked corn, oyster shells, marigold petals and flaxseed. The Omega-3 fatty acids in the flaxseed are good for your chickens and your family. The calcium in the oyster shells helps with eggshell quality and the marigold petals help to provide golden yolks because as you all know, it is all about the eggs!
Both snacks are compatible with all types of complete feeds. I sprinkled it onto their feed and fed as a treat out of my hand. You can also use it as scratch and just simply toss it on the ground for the girls to scratch around.
Remember as with any snack, if your flock does not free range or have access to gravel or rock, you will need to provide some grit so they can properly digest the treats they love so well.
Raising backyard chickens is rewarding, simple and so much fun! Making sure they are given all they can to remain healthy, strong, and great egg layers is fun for me. My chickens have become like family. I have not lost one chicken due to health reasons. I actually haven’t lost a chicken yet. I accredit this mostly due to the incredible products from Strong Animals Chicken Essentials. The other part is that I am pretty obsessed with their little personalities, so I spend a lot of time with them! Ha! Whatever raising backyard chickens looks like for you (we’re not all crazy), I hope you consider incorporating these incredible products into your flock. These new-look products will be available on Hoover’s Hatchery’s website and in your local farm stores in February 2021.
Maybe I will ask the team to run a little contest so a few lucky insiders can try them before they are in stores!
Until Next Time,
The Wing Lady
