Does your bird..
- Lay eggs continuously for weeks or months?
- Lay eggs, then breaks them and lays more eggs to replace them?
- Lay eggs that are deformed, brittle or even without a shell?
If your bird does any of the above, she is calcium deficient and very likely to be a chronic egg layer. There are many life-threatening conditions that can arise from calcium deficiency, such egg-binding, prolapse and retaining the egg (possibly leading to egg peritonitis).
Our egg laying rescue pack helps your bird lay fewer eggs, regain calcium levels so your bird can lay eggs safely.
Is this rescue pack better than providing my bird a cuttlebone?
Yes! Most of the cuttlebone that is eaten goes straight out in the poop and the calcium is not absorbed into the bloodstream. Calcivet uses a chelated mineral technology similar to the calcium supplied in nature by plants. So, it is easily absorbed and quickly gets to the bones, nerves and muscles where it is needed. It is so effective that for most of the year, your birds will only need Calcivet twice a week.
