Taking our lead from nature, SmartStart™ uses natural deep eutectic solvents (NADES) to retain water inside a semi-moist feed for a practical, simple post-hatch feeding solution.

Post-hatch feeding

Post-hatch feeding refers to the availability of feed, water and light for day-old chicks from the moment of hatching.





Post-hatch feeding promotes the development of robust day-old chicks and helps to reduce the need for antibiotics.
