Liquid Gold supplies Calcium, Vitamin D3, Magnesium, Manganese and Lutein in a readily absorbable liquid that can be added to drinking water, soaked seed or soft foods. Can also be administered orally to deficient birds.
Calcium is 'like gold' when it comes to breeding birds and raising healthy chicks. It is an essential nutrient for proper egg shell formation and bone growth in developing chicks. However most seed mixes do not provide the essential calcium that birds require. Vitamin D3 is required for the effective absorption of calcium from the gut.
Magnesium and manganese are also important minerals in egg shell and bone formation and should be balanced with calcium intake. Lutein is a naturally-occurring antioxidant that provides the rich yellow colour in egg yolk.
