I hadn't heard of that, and even looked it up and couldn't find anything about that. We did read that pine can sometimes cause problems, so we were trying to get away from that. We'd have used straw, but our local places always run out and take forever to get it back in.

Commercial chick feed has a guaranteed analysis of MINIMUM 3300 IU vitamin A per lb. If you assume your feed has a reduced level, or even zero, I think you can safely supplement at that level.
