Product Description

Poor eggshell quality is a huge hidden cost to the egg producer. Estimates are that more than 10% of eggs produced in the hen house are uncollectible or break before intended use. The economic losses for the breeders will be even more due to reduced hatchability and chick livability. Therefore, every effort must be directed towards improving shell quality and reducing egg breakage.






Argonite is a ground seashell flour. It is a natural calcium source. This is important for hard shell, egg layers, and good bone growth in growing and finishing birds. It is obvious that in order to maintain good egg shell quality it is necessary to assure adequate calcium nutrition. Hens producing approximately 300-320 eggs per year must deposit 24 times more calcium into eggshells than the amount contained in their bones. For this reason, the requirement for calcium supply in the diet is enormous. During the 20 hr period in which the eggshell is formed, the hen must deposit 25 mg of calcium on the egg surface every 15 minutes.


Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid):


Vitamin C supplementation was beneficial to maintain hens’ performances including interior and exterior egg quality under severe environmental stresses the decline in eggshell quality is not only affected by the decreased intake of calcium and phosphorus but also by the depletion of ascorbic acid required for the conversion of 25- hydroxyvitamin D3 produced by the liver into the hormone calcitriol produced in kidney, which is essential for regulation of calcium metabolism and eggshell calcification


Purified Sodium sesquicarbonate


An effective substance to regulate metabolism and acid-base balance of the chicken body. Sodium bicarbonate can promote the growth of the chicken body, improve the capacity of laying eggs, strengthen the chicken's physique, enhance the chicken's resistance to disease. Adding sodium bicarbonate powder in the laying hens' feed can increase the consistency of sodium ion and bicarbonate ion in the chicken body's blood. This benefits to the formulation of eggshells; sodium bicarbonate can increase the activity of phosphate in feed, satisfy the layer hens' demand for phosphate, increase the hardness of eggshells, reduce the ratio of defective eggs such as soft preserved eggs, thin-shelled eggs, deformed eggs and so on. Sodium bicarbonate also can improve the using rate of protein in laying hens' diets, thereby improve the egg production.


Organic Minerals:


Zinc, Manganese and copper are compounds involved in the metabolic process of eggshell formation. These trace minerals work as co-factors of enzymes involved with shell matrix formation. Carbonic anhydrase, which is zinc-dependent, stimulates calcium carbonate deposition for eggshell formation. Polymerase enzyme, which is dependent on manganese, forms the shell glycoprotein matrix or foundation. Supplementing the diet with highly bioavailable minerals like mineral-amino acid complexes increases the eggshell weight and eggshell thickness. Copper affects the synthesis of shell membrane by the activity of copper-containing enzyme lysyl oxidase.


Dietary supplementation of zinc methionine improved the shell breaking strength. Organic zinc was associated with higher activity of carbonic anhydrase and in turn with improved shell quality. The fact that zinc is a co-factor of this enzyme makes both activity and proper function of this enzyme potentially sensitive to trace elements, their interactions and availability.




When kelp meal is fed to chickens, it increases egg production and strengths shells and iodine content in eggs.


Kelp is a valuable supplement that provides vitamins, minerals, amino acids and carbohydrates that in general, improve the overall health of chickens. Kelp meal can be fed to baby chicks right after hatch and thorough out the lifetime of the flock.


Many of the minerals include calcium, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, sulfur, cobalt, copper, iodine, iron, selenium.


Additionally, kelp provides uniform shell texture and structure to maintain proper intestinal flora and bacteria. By adding small amounts of kelp to your poultry’s diet, they will gobble us less food and show an improved overall health, with fewer diseases.
