PECKStone

QS-enabled feed for more well-being
 

                       easy - effective - inexpensive - safe

 
The new VILOLith® PECKStone for layers, broilers, geese and turkeys should be set up or hanged into the stable as "changeable" manipulable material (within the meaning of QS "Tierwohl" package).
The PeckStone ist approved for organic farming also among the guidelines of Bioland e.V.
 
Behavioral abnormalities such as feather pecking and cannibalism are effectively restricted and inhibited.
Simultaneously, the beaks are worn off by the  PECKStone which significantly reduces the risk of injury when peck each other.
 
 
VILOLith® PECKStone 
The selected composition and structure guarantees a high level of acceptance at the animals. Likewise the "PECKStone" gives the animals the possibility of an individual additional intake of Ca, Mg, Na and trace elements. Thus, a healthy metabolism is supported and also the bone structure and plumage is enhanced.
 
The PECKStone has no negative effect on egg production for yolk color or fattening.
 
 
Versatile use of VILOLith® PECKStone
  • ensures active pre-occupation of animals through material wear
  • enables natural behavior during the search for food and consumption
  • promotes activity and mobility of the animal
  • reduces stress-initiating interactions between animals
  • prevents the occurence of feather-pecking and cannibalism
  • the additional intake of magnesium and sodium calms the animals and prevents behavioral deviations
  • the mineral component supports natural beak wear because of its good wear effect

How to set up/ hang up/ split manipulable material

The setting up of PECKStone should be made in a covered area. The stones can be left in the bowl, plunged from the bowl and placed directly on the floor or on top of the upturned bowl.
 
Also hanging is possible, which is especially interesting for the turkey husbandry . For this purpose, a special hanging element has been developed which is also available.
 
From many own tests and feedback from our customers, we recommend one PECKStone:
  • each 500 to 800 layers and turkeys
  • each 1.000 broilers
