About Chicken Molting & Mites

Feather Fixer Poultry Feed

Feather Fixer Poultry Feed for Molt 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.
  • Optimal protein and energy levels for chickens regrowing feathers
  • Mite-Fighter™ technology helps prevent mite infestation
  • Organic trace minerals support feather regrowth and eggshell strength
  • Added prebiotics and probiotics support proper digestion and nutrient absorption
  • Natural source of greens for periods when grass is limited
  • Tagetes (Aztec marigold) extract for golden yolks
  • Proprietary blend of nutrients naturally supports the immune system and overall health of your flock
  • Pelleted form
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.
Comments from users:
  • “Some of the chickens grew their feathers back very quickly, faster than I have ever seen before. I would definitely use it again.” - Mike H
  • “The rate at which feathers re-grew and egg production returned was unbelievable. We had eggs within 2 weeks of feeding the product.” - Andy W. 
  • "My chickens were quicker to re-feather by about 1 week faster than normal.” - Kristi P
  • “When we began using Mite-Fighter technology on a flock with significant mites present, we immediately noticed a reduction in mites. In subsequent flocks, we are using it before infestation and to this point have not seen mites develop as in the past.” - Brad L.
