Abstract MAGNESIUM is present in varying quantities in different limestones, and it has been thought that if limestones containing the higher levels of magnesium were used as a source of calcium in the diet of growing chickens undesirable effects would be produced. Both Buckner et al. (1932) and Milby (1934) observed adverse effects in chicks fed diets supplemented with magnesium carbonate in sufficient quantity to raise the magnesium level of their diets, respectively, to 13,600 and 8,900 p.p…

MAGNESIUM IN LIMESTONES FOR LAYING CHICKENS.
TLDR
Wheeler (1919) and Walker (1949) demonstrated that magnesium will not satisfactorily replace calcium in the diet of the laying chicken, and this product should never be used unless it is found to be free from this element.
Effects of varying dietary ratios of magnesium, calcium and phosphorus in growing chicks.
Abstract THE nutritional interrelationships of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium have been the object of numerous scientific reports, many of which are contradictory. It is becoming evident, however,
Supplemental Magnesium in Diets for Growing Pullets and Hens: Growth, Skeletal Development, and Egg Production
TLDR
Growing pullets and subsequently laying hens were fed practical type corn-soybean meal diets with and without 0.1% supplemental magnesium oxide (MgO) through 36 wk of age and there was a significant increase in cortical bone density and cortical density in pullets fed supplemental MgO.
