Raising chickens naturally and holistically has been a passion for Jordanne these last nine years. During those years she’s acquired a lot of knowledge and know how which is now available to help you naturally boost your backyard flock.
Jordanne’s had this product in mind for years now and it’s great to see her (finally) start this new venture and we are excited to offer our fellow homesteaders.
One surprise down, a few more to go!
The moment you put an animal behind a fence or provide it designated living quarters, you are taking on full responsibility for the life of that animal. If you are a person of conscience, then you want to treat the animal with kindness and concern and care for its comfort and safety. To provide the best care for any animal, one has to realize that nature and instinct, if left to its own devices, can provide the best. There is no way that we can improve upon nature.
Chickens and ducks are driven to choose what to eat based on instinct. In nature, they are not sole grain feeders but omnivorous birds that thrives on fresh vegetation, bugs, and even lizards and mice. Most poultry feeds eliminate the variety- leaving only grain and that alone makes for a sickly bird.
I have studied multiple books about poultry and very few dedicate any page space to the healing of illness and disease. The general belief is that chickens are cheap, short-lived and when they get sick, the best thing is to put them down because it is all too much trouble. But why does it have to be that way? If we take the time and responsibility to raise a healthy bird, the diseases, parasites and illnesses become afterthoughts. In the long run, prevention will be the best way. Sure, bad things will happen and every animal is mortal, but by concentrating on the holistic balancing of the body through minerals, vitamins and herbs, you can help not only the bird but also yourself — for the health of poultry is transferred to you via eggs (or meat, if you are a meat eater).
This feed supplement mixture comes from my long time observation of chickens and ducks (what and how they eat) as well as from our family’s knowledge of herbs. It is used on my own chickens and ducks. Several years ago, when I raised batches of chicks for selling I used the ingredients in this formula. To this day, people tell me that the chickens obtained from me were the healthiest, most adjusted and have some of the best plumage. I’m excited to be now marketing this supplement because I am passionate about caring for poultry holistically and bringing them back to their natural state and far away from the constant over-medication the poultry industry claims they need. — Jordanne Dervaes
An herbal dietary supplement that is all natural with no artificial chemicals or synthetic medications. This formula was developed using ancient knowledge of the power of herbs combined with personal, hands-on experience caring for poultry.
We have raised many unmedicated, unvaccinated chickens without any instances of coccidiosis, diarrhea, pasty-butt, or mareks disease. Most commercially prepared poultry foods are not complete and balanced. Although they may offer the basics to keep a chicken alive, they don’t provide all the trace nutrients and diversity of minerals a foraging bird would consume. Additionally, most poultry are prevented by confinement from feeding naturally. A chicken or a duck, if allowed to roam its natural habitat, will forage for a wide variety of foods and glean essential minerals from the soil, thus consuming its own preventative treatments from herbs, plants and dirt.
This is a blend of tonic (nutritive) herbs. Tonic herbs are used to attempt to improve general health, boost energy levels, and improve body tone. It is also fortified with vitamins and minerals for healthy growth and sound development. Holistic therapies address the health of the entire animal by gradually balancing the systems of the body, strengthening the immune system, and preventing disease.
The combination of herbs in this formula is traditionally used as a preventative and to build a stronger immune system so poultry can more easily fight viruses, parasites, and disease.
