How to Raise Chickens Without Antibiotics

Chickens can have numerous health problems throughout their life, and antibiotics are typically used to help with disease prevention.

There are alternatives though, and raising chickens without antibiotics is not as challenging for smaller farms than it is for larger farms.

Keep the chicken  coop clean daily

Feed the chicken antibiotic-free  feed

Use probiotics  and prebiotics

Purchase organic chicks

Antibiotics in chickens are used to treat disease. Chickens have dome different types of bacteria than humans do, and therefore they are treated with different antibiotics.

Buying Organic  chicks is more of a concept than  anything else – no chicken is  organic; it comes  down to the food  that they were fed.

Organic eggs must come from  cage-free  environments and  from chickens that  were fed organic  meals.
