Effects of supplementary water-administered vitamin D3 on egg shell thickness


, : Effects of supplementary water-administered vitamin D3 on egg shell thickness. Poultry Science 62(6): 1120-1122

A total of 77 672 White Leghorn pullets, 22 weeks old, were divided equally into a control and a test group, and all of the hens were fed on a commercial layer diet containing (for the test group) cholecalciferol 5478 international chick units (ICU)/kg. The vitamin was provided once weekly for 32 weeks added to drinking water at 4111 ICU/litre. All the hens were then moulted. The effect of cholecalciferol on egg shell thickness was studied about every month for 1 laying year.

Tyler, Cyril, 1946: The influence of different levels of dietary calcium upon egg-shell thickness, with a study of the relationship between egg-shell thickness and porosity. A low Ca diet gradually led to shell thinning but not to soft shelled eggs; a high Ca diet did not lead to general shell thickness, and there were a number of soft shelled eggs laid on the diet. The evidence suggests that high and low Ca diets may...

A simplified three-dimensional (3-D) zero-thickness shell model was developed to recover the non-spherical response of thick-shelled encapsulated microbubbles subjected to ultrasound excitation. The model was validated by comparison with previousl...

The aim of the study was to assess the effect of dietary copper on egg production and egg shell quality. Sixty White Leghorn hens, 20 weeks of age, were used. The hens were divided into two experimental groups and one control group of 20 hens per...

A continuing concern of the poultry industry is the high incidence (12%) of egg losses in the laying house due to poor egg shell quality. Calcium (Ca) homeostasis is a key factor in egg shell formation. The economy of Ca utilisation is under the c...
