Alltech Canada has introduced ChikPek, a new innovative beak-conditioning aid, featuring palatable and durable qualities that can be introduced throughout any stage of poultry production.

ChikPek’s unique formulation diverts the birds’ instinctive pecking behaviour onto the block, maintaining the welfare of the birds.

The block is non-medicated, and the non-toxic ingredients and nutrients used in ChikPek are safe to feed to all life stages of poultry and do not interfere with a flock’s regular nutrition program.

“The unique formulation of the ChikPek block, with the colour and grains, attracts the birds to the block and focuses pecking on it as opposed to the other birds,” says Dr. Kayla Price, Canadian poultry technical manager at Alltech. “It’s easy to use, and the welfare benefits make it beneficial to poultry producers.”

ChikPek is available in an 11.34 kg block and is recommended to be placed in the scratch area and/or other locations the birds frequently visit that are away from excessive moisture.

Place the block in an appropriate feeder or on the ground away from excessive moisture and use one block per 300 to 1,000 birds, depending on the activity and aggression level.
