The popularity of backyard chickens has been growing since the early 2000s; however, during the COVID-19 pandemic that status reached a record level with more people being confined at home, schools closing down, people looking for new hobbies and a genuine concern about their food supply decreasing. With the increased demand for backyard birds, BioZyme ® Inc. knew it was important to create products for these animals with the Amaferm ® advantage to demonstrate “care that comes full circle.”
Backyard Boost® is a line of natural products that are crafted to support the health, wellbeing and productivity of poultry. Backyard Boost uses only the highest quality components and proprietary ingredients proven to support a flourishing flock. Initially, BioZyme is launching two products to help backyard poultry producers produce healthy, happy birds.
