Uniform ingestion of coccidiosis vaccines made of attenuated sporulated oocysts is of paramount importance for the correct intake of these vaccines and subsequent onset of immunity and has to take place soon after the vaccine is coarse sprayed over the chicks. In order to achieve this, we need to enhance the pecking and preening behaviour of the chicks with the help of a colour and an aroma.

HIPRACOX® and now also EVALON® are the only coccidiosis oocyst vaccines with a dedicated colouring agent and aroma which are able to enhance the intake of the vaccine even under poor light conditions.
