We believe in the importance of proper feed, good bedding and clean water to ensure good welfare.
- Feed: We believe in providing a well-balanced diet that provides all of the nutrients poultry need to thrive.
- Bedding: Proper bedding helps keep birds comfortable, clean, and dry.
- Water: Clean drinking water is essential for good health and sanitation.
One way we help poultry farmers is by providing specialized feeds.
One way we help poultry farmers is by providing specialized feeds. Our feeds are formulated to provide optimal nutrition, which helps birds grow strong and healthy. Each feed is also specially formulated to meet the nutritional needs of the individual bird, as well as those of birds in a flock.
The Zoetis AP feeds are high-energy protein feeds formulated with a balanced blend of quality ingredients to provide nutrition for chicks and layers as they grow.
Zoetis AP feeds are high-energy protein feeds formulated with a balanced blend of quality ingredients to provide nutrition for chicks and layers as they grow. The feed contains a variety of high-quality chicken meal, corn, and soybean meal as well as vitamins, minerals, amino acids and trace nutrients that are essential for optimal growth and performance.
In addition to the ingredients that contribute energy and protein, Zoetis AP also provides natural antioxidants from fruits such as papaya powder and mango powder which help maintain the freshness of your birds’ eggs.
Zoetis also offers specialized feeds for broilers and finisher layer chickens that have been formulated to deliver superior growth performance, production and egg quality.
Zoetis also offers specialized feeds for broilers and finisher layer chickens that have been formulated to deliver superior growth performance, production and egg quality. For example, Zoetis Avi-Max® (which contains the active ingredient lutein), has been shown in studies to improve feed conversion ratio (FCR) at higher doses compared with a control diet. At these levels, FCR is important because it decreases total feed consumption and thus reduces the amount of time needed to grow an animal from hatchling to market weight. The improved FCR may result from enhanced nutrient digestibility, which will also help with producing eggs with high quality protein content from hens fed this diet.
In addition, studies show that when hens are fed diets containing special blends of vitamins A or D along with Avi-Max®, they lay eggs with improved shell coloration—a trait sought after by consumers!

Zoetis products are available in a variety of packages, sizes and formulations. For example, you can find Zoetis products in feed bags or pails; broiler feeds are available in a variety of sizes ranging from 1 to 25 pounds. Chick starter and grower feeds come in both 5-pound bags and pails. Layer/laying feeds are also available in 15- and 30-pound bags as well as 50-pound pails and 85-, 100-, 125-, 150-pound bulk tubs.
Zoetis provides three types of chicken feed: chick starter/grower (0–2 weeks old), layer/laying (two months old) and broiler (older than two months). These feeds contain vitamins, minerals and amino acids that meet the nutritional requirements for each stage of development for your flock as well as specific ingredients designed to help prevent infections from common poultry diseases such as coccidiosis or blackhead disease caused by Aspergillus spp., which causes respiratory distress symptoms similar to those found when chickens have Marek’s disease but do not die from it if they receive early treatment with appropriate medications once diagnosed correctly by a veterinarian familiar with this condition.”
While other companies, such as Bayer Animal Health, make products for poultry, ZOETIS has a diverse portfolio of products that can be used in many different situations to help with disease prevention and treatment.
