Oyster Shell Shortage

Edit: We currently have an Oyster Shell Alternative in our store while we wait for this shortage to end. If your girls need a great source of calcium, click here to purchase today!

The COVID-19 pandemic seems to have set off a series of events that has led to a severe national shortage of Oyster Shell.

We'll go through the reasons why these events have left us with no stock of Oyster Shell & when we might be able to sell it again.


Regulatory Issues

The Oysters Themselves

It is hard to say when we will have Oyster Shell back in stock, as many factors go into it, especially given the growing concerns about the Delta Variant of the Coronavirus.

With that being said, we are hoping to have Oyster Shell available on our site by the end of 2021.

During this time, we continue to produce the best, most nutritious feed available to give your flock what they need!

Above all, we are committed to creating quality feed that produces healthier chickens and eggcellent results!

Been with Mile Four for about a year & our layers love it!!! We recommend it to everyone. We’ll keep buying it, hope you will too. We think you’ll love it as much as our hens do.
