If you've got chickens you need to be feeding Oyster Shells which are rich in natural calcium. Can you imagine laying an egg every day? Holey Smokes. Ladies, do not hold off on feeding oyster shell to your backyard chickens. By regularly providing oyster shell you are supplementing a much needed mineral to your girls as well as toning their internal organs and digestion. It helps keep your chickens feeling good and has the added bonus of building strong eggshells.
It's so easy to use, provide to pullets beginning at 18 weeks of age and continue usage to reduce calcium depletion in your girls as well as reduce soft shelled and/or broken eggs. Can be served in separate feeder/dish or mixed into pellets, crumble or mash. Can even be scattered on the ground and the let the pecking party begin.
Do you have chicks who won't be laying for awhile? It's not too soon! Oyster shell should be provided for pullets when she's approximately 18 weeks of age. You'll continue throughout your gal's life of laying.

I've used Treats for Chickens Oyster Shell since my girls started laying last year. I ran out and picked up a box on Amazon from another vendor, the pieces were much smaller. Low and behold one of my girls starting laying soft eggs. Back to Treats for Chickens. Thank you.

I offer the oyster shell in a separate feeder for them to feed at will. So far they produce many eggs with perfect shells.

My hens prefer these oyster shell flakes to any previous brands of oyster shell I have purchased. There is less "oyster dust" in the bag so less waste.

If you own chickens, feed them oyster shell calcium to keep them healthy and make their egg shells strong and not brittle. These bags are 5.5 lbs. Other brands sell 5 pounds and it costs more. We like Treats for Chickens. The people in customer service are nice serious chicken fanatics.
