Vitamin D is an important fat-soluble vitamin necessary for proper absorption of calcium, which contributes to strong bone development and excellent shell quality. Vitamin D3 also plays an important role in the immune system of poultry. A deficiency in Vitamin D3 can lead to bone and beak weakness, and poor eggshell quality. In order to ensure an adequate nutrient balance, we recommend also supplementing your layer flock with Oyster Shell if giving Vitamin D3 in the hens’ water.
