Adding ferrous sulfate to hen feed can increase the production of egg iron, which is closely related to the hematopoietic function of chicken body, the formation and growth of feather pigment. If the iron content in the chicken is insufficient, it will cause indigestion, slow growth and development, and reduce the egg production rate. Iron is also a component of hemoglobin, myoglobin and various enzymes. It is closely related to the transport of oxygen in blood and the biological oxidation process in cells. When the iron content in the feed for chickens and eggs is too low or insufficient, nutritional anemia will occur.

According to the research, each egg needs 1.2 mg of iron.
After the hen enters the laying period, due to the vigorous metabolism and the greatly increased consumption of various substances and trace elements in the body, iron deficiency anemia is prone to occur and affect the egg production. If each hen is fed with 25-30 mg of ferrous sulfate mixed in the feed every day during the laying period, it can prevent iron deficiency anemia in the chicken and make the chicken lay 25% more eggs in an average laying cycle. Reference addition: 80 mg of iron (ferrous sulfate) and 4 mg of copper (copper sulfate) are added to each kilogram of feed for chickens within 8 weeks of age; 90 mg of iron (ferrous sulfate) and 5 mg of copper (copper sulfate) are added to each kilogram of feed for laying hens. Cobalt is a component of vitamin B12, which is usually supplemented by vitamin B12.
