    The avian shake is truly a life saver. My cross beak was in horrible shape. No matter how many feeds or supplements I tried from the feed store, he was still weak and extremely skinny. One week on the avian shake Pearl start running around, she was alert, jumping on my lap every chance she had to get some shake. A month later Pearl crowed!!!! I was shocked that Pearl is actually a rooster, more than being shocked I was horrified how malnourished he was before I found this feed. Cross beaks need special attention and extra nutrition. I so grateful for Julie, Aimee and Robin. Without all your hard work on the avian shake my precious pearl wouldn’t be here to enjoy. He’s incredibly and so is your product! Thank you!

    My chickens love the avian shake, I mix it with scrambled eggs. It smells so good and earthy it’’s just amazing stuff❣️
    I highly recommend getting some to keep your chickens happy and healthy. ❤️?

  7. Jessica

    The avian healthshake saved my hen’s life. She had tapeworms and coccicodosis pretty bad. We treated her for it, but she just wasn’t eating. We started tube feeding her with the avian healthshake and she slowly started putting on weight. Eventually she could eat on her own and now she is thriving. Now I keep a bag on hand for any sick or injured hens for a boost in nutrition. Thanks so much!

  8. Danielle Jones

    I use this for my crossbeak chicken. She has finally put on weight and is filling out like the rest of her sisters!! This was a great addition to the chick starter to make the torpedos to feed my little one.. ALL the chickens love it and beg for the treats! I highly recommend this product for chickens that have special needs!!

  9. Sandra Sorensen

    Not only does this product smell good, it has literally saved lives. We have used the avian health shake during critical times in our chickens healing and have even shared some with a local friend which provided the opportunity for her to save Big Mama. We are so thankful for the hard work and dedication you all put into keeping our flock healthy and happy!

  10. Amy Dohmen

    I have 2 crossbeaks, I went on a week trip to see my sister, and when I returned My husband said I needed to check the 2 girls. Drastic weight loss! Then I found AHS and torpedo feeding! I can not believe the difference. Both gained and now we are healthy and happy and maintaining! Thank you, Julie and Aimee. This is an amazing product!

  11. Kathy

    Best thing ever. My injured baby chick loved it and so do all the other baby chicks. It made such a difference in the injured baby.

  12. Jessica Watson

    I will never be without this in my first aid bin. It has brought a few birds back from the brink who were not eating for days. It’s easy to make a paste, mixes with about anything your bird loves. I’ve even thrown it in the blender with veggies, fruit, water and a boiled egg as a recovery meal for my flock after extremely cold days. I love this stuff.

  13. Kara Acre (verified owner)

    I love the Avian Health Shake! I will always have it on hand
    for my flock! I have used it for several chickens for many reasons. I have mixed it to use it for torpedo feeding and fed it as is. It has a wonderful scent and comes in a powder form. It took my hens the best part of the day to switch from crumbles to the powder, but once they did, they loved it!! I’m so thankful for Aimee and Robin for recommending the Avian Health Shake to me and for Julie for making it!! I’m sure it is the absolute best food I could be feeding to my little hen in the bathroom! ?

  14. Sara Adams (verified owner)

    This product is absolutely amazing! You can tell it is really fresh and it even smells good, it’s all natural ingredients and super healthy for your chickens. I recently order this to help one of my hens who got attacked and couldn’t eat and this is literally saving her life! I will always keep this on hand!

  15. Taleen

    I have 7 cross beaks. Stumbled upon this when I got my first one in. Now when I get low I panick and scramble to get the money to buy more. It’s amazing with my seramas as well. Great for any sick or injured or just a breeding pair.

  16. Jill Fletcher (verified owner)

    I am new to Crossbeak chickens and somewhat new to owning chickens in general. A wonderful support group I follow on Facebook highly recommended the Springwater Avian Health Shake above all others I had come across. I am convinced that my sweet little Crossbeak roo Eddie is thriving thanks to this health shake. I definitely recommend adding the Pau d’Arco and Moringa Leaf. It is a slight increase in price for maximum benefits for our beloved avians.

  17. J.Vincent (verified owner)

    This is an excellent product for sick or special needs chickens. It is a big part of my crossbeak silkies diet and is definitely helping her to grow and be healthy.

  18. Bridget

    AHS is absolutely awesome! I had been using it mixed with regular feed until my rooster got sick. He needed the best nutrition I could get into him so swapped to feeding him just AHS. This stuff worked even better than the prescription food from the avian vet. Highly recommend!

  19. Jaci (verified owner)

    AHS was a game changer for my cross beak chicken. He is doing amazing now and I will never ever stop buying it. If you are on the fence about, it is totally worth. He is doing so much better now and I am super pleased with the product.

  20. Amy DeRouen (verified owner)

    Hands down the savior of my babies! I use this specifically for 3 birds but all of my birds go crazy for it. This shake is amazing and if I am ever out my birds will literally turn their nose up at any alternatives. It smells so good, I’m tempted to try it!

  21. Victoria (verified owner)

    Amazing! I tube feed my crossbeak hen and she is over a year old thanks to this health shake! Thank you!

  22. Tonia (verified owner)

    I have 3 crossbeaks and this product supplements their age appropriate food. I have also fed it to sick and injured birds for an extra boost in calories and to give them the extra nutrients they needed to heal. I cannot recommend it enough. It smells wonderful and is packaged with care (mine travels all the way across the country). I use Springwater Avian Health for needed medications and supplements, as well and the owner cared enough to message me about my sick bird’s needs. Cannot say enough good things!

  23. Kelsi (verified owner)

    This product has helped my crossbeak chicken thrive and grow! Love the health shake and it smells absolutely amazing. I have also used it on my “normal” chickens when a health issue comes up as an extra boost. Whenever the mash I make is low enough that I need to make more for the next feeding for my crossbeak, I take what’s left and give it to my flock, they love it! I never waste an ounce of this amazing feed. Definitely recommend.

  24. Kimberly Graffin

    This product was graciously sent to me by my FB group friends from America to England. It has saved my crossbeaked hen, Harriet’s, life. What an amazing product and an absolute essential to have on hand fir emergencies.

  25. Connie Hazlett (verified owner)

    Awesome company. They were recommended to me for my crossbeak needs. The Avian Shake is a game changer. I have gotten several items from them. Very helpful and friendly.

  26. Amy

    Cannot live without this! Amazing what it has done for my special needs birds and such good clean ingredients! Unrelated, the Silkie snacks are awesome, just their size!

  27. Bailey Fletcher (verified owner)

    Avian Health Shake saved two of my chickens lives. It’s the perfect consistency for mash, torpedos and tube feeding. The nutritional value makes it a perfect substitution for store feed and I know I don’t have to worry about my chickens getting the right nutrients.

  28. Pippa (verified owner)

    Awesome stuff. I have a crossbeak that is surviving off of this, ahs mixed with applesauce is just about all she will eat. Thank you thank you for making products for special needs chickens.

  29. Shelley (verified owner)

    This is absolutely life changing for any sick or special needs poultry! It has become a daily essential and vital to my flock <3

  30. Marilyn Buman (verified owner)

    Avian Health Shake has saved my little crossbeak’s life. She’s grown from 97 grams to 2045 grans since April 5th. She’s a healthy 22 week old Ameracauna and enjoys her chicken life with her flock. Also have purchased the emergency supplies to have on hand. Great company.

  31. Jennifer Hyman-Wood (verified owner)

    I bought the Avian Health Shake for my Guinea keet, but then I found my little injured duckling who’s bill had been severely damaged. I made a mash with it and I got her to eat. Wow!! I saw a huge improvement in her in just a couple days. I truly believe it saved her life. I keep a bag of it on hand for emergencies or any time any of my chickens, guineas or ducks need some help. So thankful I found it.

  32. Elaine Rigsby (verified owner)

    I have used AHS for over a year with my CB! Saved her life and she even lays!
    I also use it when any of my flock are in any sort of crisis! Will always keep this stuff on hand.

  33. Samantha Lin (verified owner)

    Avian Health Shake has been a lifesaver for our special needs hen and for any of our chickens that have fallen ill for some reason or another. We can always count on the incredible quality of AHS and the love and support of the owners at Springwater Avian Health. We as a family are so incredibly grateful for AHS and we’ll always keep it on hand.

  34. Kaitlin Lamb (verified owner)

    My cross beak loves this food!

  35. Ashley (verified owner)

    Excellent product, super fast shipping, Avian Health shake has helped my crossbeak Dolly thrive, she absolutely LOVES the taste so much she attempts to fly on the counter when I’m making her mash!! Thank you for all you do to help our feathered babies!!!

  36. Emily Eddington (verified owner)

    I run an animal sanctuary for abandoned ducks and chickens (mainly rooster). The condition that the birds usually show up in is never very good. This shake has saved countless lives. Including the live of my beloved Silkie hen Ava. The boost it gives the birds to adjust to a new environment and possible illness is worth its weight in gold. I’m beyond grateful that this exists!!

  37. Sonya (verified owner)

    I got the AHS for my CB initially but Inhave found it’s a great snack for bird that are under the weather and need extra boost. My house hen loves it and that’s all she eats now.
    I also have gotten meds for sick birds and the time they take to help you get the proper medicine and dosage per bird is so helpful. It definitely helped lower the stress and anxiety I had helping to diagnose and help my sick chickens.
    Really wonderful. company!

  38. Elaine Rigsby (verified owner)

    I’ve been using avian health shake daily for my CB hen. She has absolutely thrived and lays almost every day! I attribute her health completely to AHS! I also use it as a pick me up for hens under the weather for any reason. So many chicken mallodies are related to nutrition.

  39. Sherry Mitchell (verified owner)

    I have a crossbeak that I adopted. He was underweight because he could not eat like his flock. He was only 8 weeks and alot smaller then the rest. I gave him the shake with his food and he gained and is a big happy roo. Love this shake.

  40. Cheryl (verified owner)

    Top quality product. Super fresh, and fast shipping. All the birds love it! I used it to enhance the health and growth of my chicks this year.

  41. Jeannette V (verified owner)

    This a great product, it did so much to help my cross beak chicken thrive and it’s great when I have a chicken that is under the weather as well. Great company with great customer service and prompt shipping.

  42. Tabitha Whitworth (verified owner)

    Took a little while to receive my product because the company was going through some changes. I notified them. And asked if they could send it like next day shipping because i REALLY needed it and they sent it immediately when it was available. Just wish they would have reached out to me instead of me having to contact them. But I highly recommend the product. Because it supposed to have a lot of benifets. You can even add it to sick chickens that need a boost. And the herb part should help boost their immune system. Would I order again? Yes, yes I will be ordering again. And also the bag of again shake it BIG. I would like to try other products. 🙂 Thank you for the hard work. It is greatly appreciated!

  43. Jen Prestage (verified owner)

    Avain health shake is fresh ground, always ships timely and a perfect supplement for my special needs chicken. The other products are priced fairly and necessary for good chicken health! I highly recommend to everyone I know with chickens!

  44. Cathy (verified owner)

    I started feeding my crossbeak avian health shake when she was about 3 weeks old. This stuff is fabulous!!! She has gained so much weight and is thriving! My other chickens are all molting right now and I am mixing this in with their mash for added nutrition. Absolutely wonderful product!

  45. Kirsten (verified owner)

    Amazing product! I use it for my tiny crossbeak chicken. She’s put on weight and is thriving! I give this to my chickens when they get sick. Super fast shipping. Highly recommend.

  46. Kristin (verified owner)

    I am new to being a cross beak chicken mom. The Avian Health Shake has been a literal life saver! I would give more than 5 stars if possible. AHS has helped pack on the grams and has helped give my special guys a fighting chance to their best lives.

  47. Chelsey Heath

    We LOVE Avian Health Shake for any birds in our chicken flock who aren’t feeling well or for our special needs flock. Amazing product everyone with birds should always try to have on hand.

  48. Lori Hoback (verified owner)

    I love Avian Health Shake for my crossbeak. She is thriving and gaining weight. It mixes so smooth for tube feeding and smells great. Shipping is fast too! Don’t ever stop making it!

  49. Tina Miller (verified owner)

    I want to give it 100 stars. My December was born mid August and after about 2 months, she was not eating successfully. Tried syringe, what a mess. Shoving cat food because it was right size for her little mouth. Come Thanksgiving she was getting picky and not wanting cat food. Made torpedoes. She was maintaining current weight 1/3rd size of flockmates born same time. A crossbeak group on FB told me about this shake. Ordered the catheters and shake. Got it January 2nd. Started her first feeding January 3rd. She weighed that morning 1.8lbs. Weighed her yesterday after 19 days on this and she tipped the scale at 3lbs. She is almost the same size as flockmates. AHS is magic. We love it. Thank You so much for this product.
