This step by step tutorial of how to fix vitamin deficiencies in homesteading chickens will upgrade not only their health but make their eggs and meat delicious.
If you keep homesteading chickens, you want them to be healthy. Unfortunately, one of the common problems chickens, and especially chicks, face is vitamin deficiencies.
These are such treatable problems, but they’re often overlooked, so that every year, chickens die from something that could easily have been prevented.
If you think your chickens are vitamin deficient, you should start treating them immediately. Usually, if the deficiency is caught in time, it can be treated and reversed in a few days! One way to make sure this doesn’t happen is to make sure you’re using quality feed. The other is to include food in their diets that naturally provide them with the vitamins they need.
This tutorial provides a list of vitamins that chickens need to have in their diet, but often have deficiencies in. The guide also provides a list of ways you can add this to their everyday diet so the deficiencies never take place. However, it should be noted, with chicks, other precautions need to be taken, since they can’t digest everything. The guide explains this further.
