What is Zolcal D?

It’s a supplement that adds calcium into the diet of chickens that are showing deficiencies.

How do you use Zolcal?

Add 10ml to fresh drinking water for 3-5 days in hens laying soft eggs, in older hybrid chickens over 50 weeks use should be on going.

Do I need to contact a vet if my chickens are laying soft eggs?

If the first instance of symptoms hasn’t improved after a first treatment, we would recommend contacting a vet.

More Info

Zolcal-D is a veterinary formulated liquid supplement to be administered in fresh clean drinking water.

It provides supplementary dietary calcium and vitamin D. Vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium in the gut, maintaining calcium and phosphate concentrations in the blood, which enable normal mineralisation of bone. Some of the calcium is used from the hen’s bones which is processed into calcium carbonate which assists in shell formation.

This can make layers in later life susceptible to osteoporosis (brittle and poor bone density) and the shell of the egg becomes thinner if they do not receive an adequate supply.

​Use 10ml Zolcal-D per 1litre of drinking water for 5-7 days during periods of intermittent shell issues. Use at the same rate continually with an older hen. Any excess calcium and vitamin D is excreted as by product if not required by the bird

“I can’t wait to purchase hens through Pipinchick in the new year!”

"Brilliant service, great products with neatly designed packaging with direct instructions on the labelling. I am treating a (formerly) paralyzed chicken with severe nutritional wry neck successfully with guidance from the Pipinchick website. Products arrived on 48hr delivery, I can't wait to purchase hens through Pipinchick in the new year!"

Janine, Sept ’22

“Pipinchick couldn’t have been more helpful”

Pipinchick couldn't have been more helpful, delivering our two friendly hens and some supplies we couldn't get hold of elsewhere. The birds have kept us entertained - and supplied with eggs - all summer long. If you are lucky enough to have a small garden I'd recommend a few chickens for everyone.
