Q. What the cluck is
No Norfolk Island / TAS / WA
A. A hemp based, animal product free, nutritional supplement for birds. Whether you have chickens or caged birds, incorporating hemp seed meal promotes shinier plumage and strengthens their immune system resulting in healthier birds, bigger and more nutrient dense eggs. Contains all Australian ingredients. No GMO, seed treatments, fumigation, fillers, coatings or other nasties.
Hemp provides a wide spectrum of nutrients. This food grade meal contains no THC and is not 'medicinal'.
This is a supplement and is intended to be part of a rich diversity of food offered to or foraged by chickens and caged birds. It is generally recommended that a day's feed ration for a single hen is 100 - 120 grams per day in total, more or less based on scraps provided and free-range access. Incorporate Green Harvest Funky Chicken at a third to half of your normal feed, into a feeder.

Natra-Kelp Liquid Seaweed For Animals
Natra-Kelp Liquid Seaweed is a supplement for your animals, providing a wide range of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and amino acids. Made from sustainable Southern Tasmanian Bull Kelp (Durvillaea potatorum), it can be administered orally, mixed with food or in water. The bacterial fermentation process used to liquefy the kelp increases the digestibility and palatability of the liquid and maximises the nutrient content. Improvements in animal health can include increased resistance to internal parasites, improved condition of coat or feathers, and higher quality of products such as milk, eggs or meat. Recommended for dairy and beef cattle, horses, calves, sheep, goats, deer, pigs, poultry, dogs and cats. This kelp is not readily available in the retail market but is used by organic farmers internationally. Dosage rate information included on bottle. More information from the manufacturer
Tracy of Darkwood, New South Wales, is so pleased with the response from her thoroughbred horses after being given Natrakelp Liquid Seaweed that she decided to try some on her 'sick chooks'.
She now reports:
You may also be interested to know that I'm now using the Natrakelp for my chooks. I don't know why I've been having problems with falling feathers (not the usual moult - I'm talking bald chooks here) and walking around on their hocks - with the way I feed them they shouldn't be deficient in anything! (layer pellets and wheat twice a day, with free-choice meat meal always available, as well as scraps and 100 acres of really good pasture to range in - lots of lovely goat and horse poo to dig around in, shell grit always available etc. etc. they really are terribly ungrateful to be unhealthy in any way, shape or form!)
After culling one flock and starting again only to be faced with the same problem, I was at my wits end. The vet had no answers either 'they should be the healthiest chooks in history with the way you look after them!' In desperation I put a teaspoon of Natrakelp in their drinking water once a week and bingo! Three weeks later they're all walking properly and feathers are growing back like mad. I'm now putting a teaspoon in all the poultry's drinking water once a week in the hope that the low fertility rates in the turkeys and geese will be fixed up too.
