FortiShell® Feed Additive
Optimizing shell quality at 40+ weeks
Poor egg shell quality can be a significant cost to egg producers. Estimates show that over 10% of eggs produced in the hen house are uncollectible or break before their intended use. Multiple factors affect the quality of the egg shell including strain, diseases, molting, water quality, stress, temperature and nutrition. The age of bird is an additional factor because as the hen ages, the thickness of the shell usually declines. The functional ingredients in FortiShell® Feed Additive can support shell quality and the hen’s persistence of lay.
