Dr Rob Marshall Hi-Cal is used to prevent soft-shelled eggs and to prevent egg-binding.
Hi-Cal should be used when egg-shell problems are a result of moulding disease or bowel infections (e.g. E.coli, diarrhea, sweating disease).
These diseases prevent the proper absorption of minerals.
For birds with a history of egg-binding, Hi-Cal should be added to the drinking water a few days after the pair is placed in the breeding cage and continued until the clutch is complete.
Hi-Cal does not contain D3 or Magnesium (essentials required for proper calcium absorption).
Hi Cal should always be used with a full spectrum vitamin supplement containing Vitamin D3 and magnesium, or may be used as a stand-alone product when aiding an egg-bound hen.
