News & Blog

Poultry Industry is one of the major contributors to the agricultural economy, not just in India but at the global level. It plays a pivotal role in food production, trade and stability across the globe. However, this industry is threatened by the thin chicken egg shell issue, affecting both operational and economic aspects.

Thin Chicken Egg Shell – Identifying the Problem

To devise a solution, it is crucial to figure out the root cause of the problem. Several factors contribute to think chicken eggshells which are:

  1. Nutritional Deficiencies: Lack of essential nutrients like phosphorus, calcium and vitamin D in laying hens leads to thin eggshells.
  2. Environmental Factors: Hot weather also contributes to the problem as hens tend to eat a lot less, leading to reduced calcium intake, leading to thin eggshells.
  3. Health Issues: Diseases, hormonal imbalance and stress also contribute to thinner eggshells.
  4. Management Practices: Poor management of the coop like not cleaning it on time can lead to increased ammonia levels in hens, thereby affecting their ability to absorb calcium. Lower the calcium, thinner the eggshells.
