In Western Australia, increasing quantities of ground rock phosphate from Christmas Island are being incorporated in stock foods to increase the calcium and phosphorus content. In a previous article (Snook 1958) experiments are reported which indicate that this particular rock phosphate can be incorporated in the rations of laying hens without any apparent effect on the health or productivity of the birds.
