Of course not. Vitamins, methionine, and lysine are all additives. If they are not used, it will affect the egg production rate. Unsound nutrition will affect the peak of egg production, and the profit will decrease, and the gain is not worth the loss. For example, bile acid can prevent liver and gallbladder syndrome in laying hens and prevent sporadic deaths in later stages. If not used, the loss of chickens that died later will be much higher than the cost of your additives.

The following RICHI will share some relevant information about layer chicken feed additives with you.

1. What are the benefits of using chicken feed additives to raise laying hens?

(2) Egg weight has increased. The egg size of the two groups in the experimental group and the control group may be about the same, and even the size of the egg that eats Haitidebao is smaller, but when compared by weighing, the egg size of the two groups is generally heavier.

(3) The thickness and hardness of the egg shell are improved, and it is not easy to damage.

(4) The egg white is thick and the egg yellow is distinct

(5) The feces are not smelly and can effectively improve the breeding environment.

(6) It can effectively improve feed utilization and disease resistance.

2. How to use layer chicken feed additives correctly?

(1) When adding antibiotics to chicken layers feed, pay attention to the selection of animal-specific antibiotics, use less or no antibiotics shared by humans and animals, and change the type and dosage of antibiotics accordingly with changes in environmental conditions.

(6) Additives and feed should be mixed evenly.

3. Which egg-enhancing products are good for laying hens?

(1) Layers are supplemented with vitamins during the laying period. Supplementing multiple vitamins is to promote high and stable production of laying hens. Among various vitamins, especially vitamin D, when the diet is lacking for a long time, the egg production of laying hens will decrease, the eggshell will become soft and thin, and the absorption of calcium will be seriously affected. 

(2) Increase mineral content. The main minerals are calcium and phosphorus. When hens lay their eggs, they need more calcium. If calcium is lacking in the chicken feed, the quality of the eggshells will be affected, which will increase the number of damaged eggs. In severe cases, the chickens will lay soft and shellless eggs. The imbalance of calcium and phosphorus ratio can not be eliminated. Phosphorus deficiency and calcium deficiency can also cause discomfort in laying hens, such as pecking feathers, anus pecking, and egg pecking. Therefore, it is particularly important to increase the content of mineral additives in the diet accordingly.

(3) Improve protein levels. Everyone is well aware that eggs are a rich protein source. Therefore, hens consume more protein during the laying period. On the one hand, they must maintain themselves, and on the other hand, they must produce. Tests have shown that chicken protein consumption The egg production rate of chickens is related, so the protein raw materials in the feed should be increased according to the increase of chicken egg production rate.

(4) Reduce energy feed. To increase protein, energy must be reduced accordingly, otherwise it cannot be achieved. In addition, feeding the high-energy feed during the wintering period will increase the weight of the laying hens, thereby affecting the egg production rate. Because fat chickens do not lay eggs, the reason is simple.

7. Is there any effect of using oxytetracycline in layer breeding?

Oxytetracycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that can prevent and treat many diseases.

8. Laying hens suddenly lay a lot of rotten eggs. Is there any reason for chicken feed additives?

The quality of eggshell is an important factor affecting the economic benefits of the poultry and egg industry. At present, in many chicken farms and chicken flocks of professional chicken farmers, the phenomenon of hens producing thin and soft-shelled eggs often occurs, causing serious economic losses. One of the possible reasons is the indiscriminate feeding of chicken feed additives.

Practice has proved that rational use of additives can improve the quality of eggshells. However, there are many kinds of feed additives currently used in our country, and the additives suitable for chickens must be selected from them, and the reasonable dosage must be mastered. Otherwise, the balance of various nutrients and normal material metabolism in the chicken body will be broken, and the eggshell will become thinner.
