Feather Fixer™ with Mite-Fighter™ Technology is a unique and innovative life-stage product that can also be fed year round if desired. It solves two big problems: what to feed your flock to help them get through molt quicker and helping to prevent mites. How does Mite-Fighter™ technology work? Mite-Fighter™ is a natural, proprietary ingredient that is not a chemical or a drug. The Mite-Fighter™ ingredient passes through the digestive system of the chicken and is excreted in the feces, making the area around the vent inhospitable for mites and helping to deter mite infestations. The Mite-Fighter™ ingredient has no effect on rate of lay, egg quality, egg safety for consumption, or meat quality. About Molting & Mites: All hens and roosters experience molt, the normal, natural process of losing and regrowing feathers. Molt's purpose is to supply chickens with fresh, new feathers. Read more about molt in our Knowledge Center. Mites are external parasites that all poultry are highly susceptible to. All hens and roosters go through molt (losing feathers and regrowing them) annually. Individual chickens molt for different lengths of time, typically for 8-12 weeks, when day length shortens. Eggs and feathers are both high in protein (15% and 85% respectively). During molt, because your hens are directing the protein in their diets to feather growth, egg production may decrease or stop. Proper nutrition will help them get through the molt period faster. Additional tips: Avoid stressing your chickens (changing their environment or routine). Consider adding extra feeding stations so chickens lower in the pecking order have sufficient access to feed. Avoid handling if possible (exposed skin and regrowing feathers are tender). If you have a rooster, consider segregating him while your flock is in molt so he does not further irritate exposed skin during mating.
