In less than 3 weeks chickens have problems if they do not have vitamin D

Poultry Feed Recalled July 2012

The supplier had failed to include vitamin D in a batch of feed
Inadequate levels of vitamin D in a bird's diet for more than two or three weeks may cause bone weakness, fractures or joint problems, and potentially death in birds not exposed to direct sunlight daily, according to a press release from the FDA.

Reminder: Before the 1940's all poultry had access to the sunshine.
