The first 24 h to 72 hours of young birds lives determine their lifetime zootechnical performances. When the fasting window is too long, young birds become more vulnerable to contaminations risks.
To survive, young birds have a lipoprotein reserve (the yolk) which they transform into nutrients depending on their needs.
Nevertheless, It’s feed ingestion that allows them to initiate their digestive function and to stimulate their immune system.
Thus, feeding and hydrating young birds as soon as possible is THE solution to ensure their welfare, while improving their viability and boosting their zootechnical performances.
Our nutritional solutions in gel form combine hydration, nutrition and high palatability. Which make them perfectly adapted for young birds.
