3 days of treatment
- The color and the roughness of the eggshell started to improve.
- The amount of animals with digestive problems diminished.
5 days of treatment
- Only 40% of the eggs had pale eggshells.
- Most of the eggs showed normal texture.
- The amount of animals with digestive problems were further reduced.
7 days of treatment
