PROBIOTICS AND CA METABOLISM IN LAYING HENS
As the laying cycle progresses, eggs get bigger while the hens’ calcium (Ca) metabolism becomes disrupted. This leads to worsening eggshell quality as hens age. All the Ca deposited on the eggshell comes from the feed. Therefore, its assimilation and mineralization also relies on the bird’s digestive health status.
BACTOCELL enhances birds’ digestive and protective functions, it has been shown to improve eggshell thickness and to reduce the number of rejected eggs.
