Poultry Breeder, Jill Weaver, Gives Orego-Stim an “Hen-ourable” Mention…
“I have kept chickens for the past 40 years and have been showing them for the last 13. I currently have about 400 birds, including species such as Wyandotte, Derbyshire Redcap, Vorwerk, Barbu Dúccle, Japanese Bantam, Phoenix and also my own breed! My breed has auto-sexing at the egg stage and I am hoping to have it recognised this year as a stand-alone breed.
I have been using Orego-Stim Liquid, by Anpario, for the past 10 years. The chickens are given the recommended dose in their drinking water, via a header tank, every day. In addition to this, I use it in the fermented grain I feed my birds, for which I combine 4ml of Orego-Stim Liquid with 4L of water, add it to the grain and leave it to ferment for three days. I have found that using this feed means I have no need for chick starter diets.
My main reason for using Orego-Stim Liquid is to help fight coccidiosis, but there are many other noticeable benefits, particularly regarding the birds general health. I find that the chickens withstand the stresses of the show season, for example the constant washing and transport, far better when they are consuming Orego-Stim. They maintain excellent health, with firm droppings and less waste. Breeders have an increased eggshell strength, and whilst I can’t comment on increases in fertility, I can say the chicks are always healthy.
There was an 8 month period in which I had run out of Orego-Stim Liquid, and whilst I was sourcing it, I had three chickens die from blackhead disease. I have never had any issues with blackhead when the birds have been on Orego-Stim Liquid.
I have been using Orego-Stim Liquid for such a long time now that I cannot remember how I originally heard about it. I tell everyone about it though! I have been running poultry workshops about twice a year for the last 10 years, as well as giving talks at garden clubs for people who want to learn about the health and well-being of chickens. Amongst other things, I always recommend Orego-Stim Liquid.”
