Pecking (or picking) is a common problem among domesticated chickens, turkeys, and other poultry. Birds will peck to forage for food, and they will peck one another to establish order or hierarchy or to relieve stress or boredom.
Although it’s natural for chicken pecking to occur, it can lead to some very unnatural outcomes. Injury, mortality, and cannibalism are all possibilities as bully birds work to the top of the pecking order.
Even the best managed flock can suffer from persistent pecking. PECKStones are the easy, effective, and economical solution. The all-natural stone offers multiple benefits:
Whether you have 5 birds or 55,000, the PECKStone is great for any poultry grower. This mineral stone arrives in a plastic tub that can be used as a stand or platform for the stone.
Remove the PECKStone from the plastic tub. Either place the stone directly on the ground, litter, or scratch area or turn over the plastic tub and position the PECKStone on top of it.
The PECKStone could also be modified for hanging in turkey flocks or for other large birds.
The PECKStone is made from a combination of minerals, including calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. The special formulation of PECKStone minerals encourages birds to peck the stone rather than one another. These minerals are compressed to form an extra-hard stone. The hardness helps promote natural beak wear to prevent injuries.
