Bee Feed Sub made from Dried Chicken Blood

Recommended Posts

Yes it's true, in the USA where beekeepers feed a lot of pollen substitute, Purina have released a substitute bee feed which is made from 80% dried chicken blood.

 

It's called Purina Hearty Bee.

 

I'm posting, to wise people up incase this product ever finds it's way to NZ. In my view, we trade our honey off a unique environment here, and this product should it get here and come into use, is a public relations disaster waiting to happen.

Hi @Alastair, seasons greetings! Can you point to where the chicken blood bit is substantiated? I must be missing something.

Spray Dried Chicken Blood is on this list of ingredients. I've lost the part where it gives the percentages but have asked for it so will post when or if I get answered.
