(PRESS RELEASE) SALISBURY, MD– Perdue AgriBusiness, a subsidiary of Perdue Farms, the fourth largest poultry producer in the United States, will showcase its FlockerLeader line of probiotics and supplements designed for backyard chickens at SuperZoo 2022, North America’s largest pet industry trade show scheduled August 23-25 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. You can visit the company at booth No. 3357.

“We know every backyard chicken owner wants to keep their flock healthy. We created the FlockLeader line to do just that,” said Dr. John Sylvester, director of sales and marketing for Perdue AgriBusiness animal nutrition. “We understand that there’s no single probiotic solution that can serve as a ‘catch-all,’ especially when we’re talking about 14 million households* who have backyard chickens. Our six unique products each help solve specific issues.”

According to the 2021-2022 American Pet Products Association Pet Owners Survey, backyard chicken ownership is the third most common type of pet ownership in the U.S, trailing only dogs and cats. While more than 14 million households have backyard flocks, seven out of 10 of those households consider chickens to be pets, the survey showed.

The 2021 launch of the FlockLeader line of probiotics and supplements reflects Perdue Farms’ leadership in animal nutrition and welfare and marks the first direct-to-consumer product from Perdue AgriBusiness.

FlockLeader by Perdue includes several products that promote chicken health, including Arrive, a daily supplement to give newly hatched chickens and young birds a healthy start; Thrive, a daily supplement that helps maintain a healthy flock; and Recover, a water supplement to support mild stress. These three main products – Recover, Recover Plus, and Recover 911 – can provide backyard chicken keepers with a trustworthy daily supplement or troubleshoot health concerns that may arise in flocks.
FlockLeader can be purchased online through backyardchicken.com, a dedicated educational website created by Perdue AgriBusiness that also offers expert resources about chicken behavior for backyard flock enthusiasts, Amazon and select Tractor Supply stores. Visit the store locator at backyardchicken.com for places to purchase FlockLeader products.

NASC Media Spotlight

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
