Calcium is the most important mineral required by cage and aviary birds. The hen requires a greater amount for egg formation and chicks need the Calcium for skeletal growth.
Calcium deficiency is still the biggest problem in cage and aviary birds with the shortage of usable calcium impacting egg laying and binding, hens unable to lay or breed and chicks with broken bones.
Calcium deficiency can lead to a host of health problems such as nervousness, aggression and feather plucking.
New Formula Calciform HiD3 is 8 x the strength of the old product.
Dosage drops from 20ml to just 2.5ml per litre of drinking water during breeding or suspected calcium deficiency, and from 20ml to just 2.5ml per 2 litres of drinking water as maintenance.
The pack sizes have been reduced as New Formula Calciform HiD3 is 8 x the strength.
100ml replaces the old 250ml as the smallest size, 250ml replaces the old 1,000ml and 1,000ml replaces the old 2,500ml.
And in the case of the 250ml which replaces the old 1,000ml, we have also reduced the price.
The cost per day for New Caciform HiD3 is less than half that of the old product.
Again, using the 250ml which replaces the old 1,000ml as an example, maintenance cost per day drops from 30p to 12p per litre of drinking water treated.
As with the old product, New Calciform HiD3 contains Calcium and Vitamin D3. However, the new formula has a much higher ratio of Vitamin D3 to Calcium (hence the new name) and the Calcium is from a different source offering greater absorption.
The elevated levels of Vitamin D3 augments dietary Calcium absorption and metabolism.
Vitamin D3 also supports the absorption of dietary Phosphorus.
The source of Calcium used in New Formula Calciform HiD3 increases blood Calcium and the amount of Calcium deposit in bones and shell.
This source of Calcium is a pre-cursor to the Amino Acid Arginine, which is involved with the Calcium binding proteins resulting in a greater capacity to transport calcium to where it is needed.
Yes, CALCIFORM HiD3 is just as safe as the old product.
Although 8 x the strength the dosage is only one eighth the previous level.
