This is a really good additive to your chickens regular diet, I try to ensure that my girls have as much support for their health in the Winter period. By adding this to their feed helps with digestive health and their immune system!
I am just finishing my 3rd pack of this stuff. I use it for my kitchen waste and it really works well. I have recommended it to others who are also into this great way of decomposing your kitchen waste safely. I highly recommend it, shame its not cheaper and what has happened to the delivery charges - sorry had to deduct 1 star for that?
I feed this to one of my horses on the vet's recommendation. The horse suffered from hind gut acidosis and is subsequently easily upset by grass. Feeding Syn-vital daily keeps him on an even keel and allows him to have a normal life grazing all year round.
Stops the poo smell so makes chicken keeping more pleasant. Buy it
Difficult to know exactly what this stuff is doing but it makes the hen shed smell really nice and a bit like a brewery - which has to be good - and I imagine the manure is rotting down more quickly. The hens are healthy so all in all I like it.
Unlike most of Omlet's customers I don't use this for feeding chickens but instead use it in my Bokashi bin. I've tried various brands of Bokashi bran, including the stuff that came with my Blackwall bins, and none of it seemed to have the proper "Bokashi smell". Worst still, didn't seem to break down the food waste properly, even after leaving it to "pickle" for a few weeks. The Syn-Vital stuff, on the other hand, does a brilliant job of turning the food to mush and it does it with the sweet pickle-ish Bokashi smell that you'd expect. Highly recommended!
I like the other reviews so I bought some and my girls love it
I have bought many products from Omlet but this HAS to be one of the best yet. Cheap and affordable are definate perks for something that has really changed my chicken keeping ways. 3 weeks ago I rescued 6 ex-battery hens, all were rather worse for wear but they perked up with some of this and were soon tucking into their grub and laying like mad. There are no horrid smells and 2kg will go a very long way. I can't fault this product and would recommend to all.
I have been using this in 2 ways - adding a small amount to their daily rations of layers mash and putting some in a small cage cup in their run. It has proved very popular by all the hens and has definitely firmed up their poos as well as reduced the smell. Highly recommended.
hens love it mixed in with daily rations..great value!
