2,6% more Grade-A eggs after feeding laying hens with dried egg shells

In collaboration with AgruniekRijnvallei (a major Dutch Feed producer), a 100-weeks during feeding trail was completed recently in which the effect of dried egg shells (Calcolin DES) in laying hen feed on egg quality was studied.

One of multiple positive findings when dried egg shells are used as a calcium source, is a significantly higher percentage of A-class eggs and less cracks. Soon all findings of the feeding trial will be described in a white paper.
